SWIB's past Charities of the Year

swib's charity of the year for 2019-21 was Glasgow Care Foundation.

SWIB supported Glasgow Care Foundation for 2 years rather than one due to the significant impact of COVID on our ability to raise funds.

Glasgow Care Foundation have been helping the people of Glasgow for over 140 years. For those who can not receive any assistance from other agencies and have exhausted all options – they can provide basic household goods.

They also support key local community projects, families holidays and we put back the magic into Christmas with food vouchers and toys for families.

During the 2 years, swib raised £2018.75 (plus Gift Aid) for Glasgow Care Foundation by a variety of means, including the Christmas raffle, swib committee fundraisers like the Run Walk Cycle and 100 Miles in a Mmonth.

Previous recipients have included:

  • Home-Start Glasgow South (2018-19)
  • Playlist for Life (2017-18)
  • Dress for Success Scotland(2016-17)
