Renfrewshire’s Provost Lorraine Cameron raised £15,448.05 for local group Clothed in Love in 2023.

Provost Cameron pledged to support Clothed in Love as one of four charities she will support during her term as Provost.

Clothed in Love was launched in 2020 and is based at Mossvale Community Church. The group support local families by providing clothing and other items for children from birth up to 7 years of age.

Provost Cameron said: “It was very important to me that I use my term as Provost to support local charities and community initiatives wherever possible and I’m proud to not only have been able to raise so much money for Clothed in Love, but also help spread awareness of the fantastic work they are doing to help people in need in our communities.

“One of the main things we did this year to raise money was our Charity Chomp Challenge where I was joined by some of my fellow councillors for an eating challenge – I’m A Celebrity style! It’s an event we won’t forget in a hurry! Thank you to everyone who took part or donated to our fundraising efforts. Every penny makes a difference.”

Along with fundraising, Provost Cameron also wanted to increase awareness of Clothed in Love through sharing their clothing or item appeals on social media.

Alison Hastings, founder of Clothed in Love said: “Clothed in Love is grateful to Provost Lorraine Cameron for her support and dedication to our cause.

“Over the past year, she has helped us raise much-needed funds and awareness, which have supported our mission to help vulnerable families across Renfrewshire. Provost Cameron’s contributions have made a significant and tangible difference in the lives of those we serve – from the provision of additional storage space, enabling us to store extra clothing and baby equipment to expanding our Facebook presence.

“Thanks to the funds received, Clothed in Love can retain our storage unit for at least three more years, allowing us to continue our efforts to help those in need. We extend our sincere thanks to Provost Cameron and all who have supported us on this journey so far.”
