The group recently distributed 500 food and clothing parcels following a successful Christmas fundraising programme, but is already looking for more donations to help others in the New Year.

“Poverty does not disappear when Christmas ends,” said David Thomson, Destiny Angels director.

“People are often more generous in the festive season but our message is that the most vulnerable require support no matter what month it is. More and more people are looking for assistance and we want to ensure we are in a position to help them.”

Destiny Angels was established by the Destiny Foundation in 2009, a non-demonitional church, to offer support to those who find themselves destitute for whatever reason.
