Scottish Labour MSP Paul O’Kane visited a Men’s Breakfast Club in Newton Mearns and praised it for “offering a great start to a Friday” for members.
The breakfast club, which takes place every Friday morning from 10am to 11am in Mearns Kirk Hall, is run by Mearns Kirk Helping Hands.
O’Kane spoke with breakfast club members and volunteers. The hour-long session offers tea, coffee and freshly prepared hot breakfast roll to members and, according Mearns Kirk Helping Hand’s website, originated from an idea put forward by one of the volunteers.
The labour man already visited Mearns Kirk Helping Hands earlier in the week to observe the charity’s Blether and a Brew session.
Commenting Paul O’Kane said:
“The Men’s Breakfast Club is a fantastic idea and seeing it for myself it’s clear that it’s offering a great start to a Friday for all of the members”
“A breakfast roll, a cup of tea or coffee and some good chats… it’s simple stuff but a priceless thing to have in the community”
“I can’t speak highly enough of Mearns Kirk Helping Hands and how hard their volunteers work to offer support and company to those who need it”
