Group fights poverty

ONE of Scotland’s leading anti-poverty organisations will deliver the 12th Annual Roy Paterson Memorial Lecture at Cairns Church, Milngavie, next week.

The Poverty Truth Commission has been an ever-present voice in their campaign to instil a culture of social equality throughout the country.

Members of the group will provide the keynote address for this year’s event, which will take place on Thursday, January 26.

Tickets for the lecture, which starts at 7.45 for 8pm and are priced at £6, can be obtained from the church office – phone 0141 956 4868.

Any surplus will go to commission funds.
