- the Gaelic for “precious” – and that is how we feel
about everyone who comes through our doors - is a recognised Christian
charity. In a friendly, caring, loving and supportive way Preshal seeks
to tackle, head-on, the problem of social exclusion in the Linthouse
area of Glasgow. This problem is manifested in poverty, alcohol and
drug addiction, low literacy and numeracy levels, depression and low
self-esteem. The Trust, working with other agencies, provides a wide
range of social, recreational and educational activities which enable
these issues to be dealt with effectively. We adopt an holistic approach
whereby we seek to cater for the whole person, including meeting individual
physical, mental and – as a Christian rooted organisation - spiritual
Trust’s premises are open Monday - Friday, 9.15 a.m. - 4.45 p.m.,
on Sunday evening, from 6.00 p.m., when the Preshal Fellowship meets,
and, as of April 2010, on two evenings, for youth work. Each day there
is a varied programme of activities (always beginning with tea and toast!),
and in any one week folk engage in pastimes such as art and craft work,
including card and model making, photography, board and table games,
cooking, keep-fit, bowls, golf, fishing, and in literacy, numeracy and
IT classes. We also encourage our people to socialise and build relationships,
and activities such as the twice weekly lunch club, regular outings
in the minibus, and karaokes assist this process!
WEEK - Monday, 25th to Friday, 29th November 2013 between 10am and 2pm
