WHAT WE DO WITH THE SURPLUS RAISED FROM YOUR DONATIONS
The purpose of the charity shop is to promote the charitable, community, outreach and mission work of the church within the Mid Deeside Parish boundary. This includes the villages of Kincardine O’Neil, Lumphanan, Torphins and Tornaveen. All net proceeds are allocated to the mission/outreach work of the church, including donations to other local charities, community groups and good causes. Written requests for funds are encouraged and charity shop volunteers make recommendations which are then approved or adjusted by the Kirk Session who are the Trustees of Mid Deeside Church.
