On Wednesday 25th May 2022 both John Kelly, Chairperson of Cunninghame Housing Association (CHA) and Frank Sweeney, Group Chief Executive of CHA presented a cheque for £1,000 to Frances Gilmour and Alison Montgomery of the Ardrossan Christmas Decorations Committee (ACDC).
The Ardrossan Christmas Decorations Committee has been running since 2001 by a voluntary organisation. Their aim is to improve the quality of life for the people of Ardrossan. They achieve this by the provision of Christmas lights and a festival celebration including the annual Santa Parade bringing community groups together through participation in the Parade as well as the Christmas Fayre and switch on of lights in Ardrossan.
The funding provided by Cunninghame Housing Association will assist with the financial commitments involved in making the festival celebration and Christmas lights happen in the town. The Christmas event brings much needed cheer to the town at a time that can prove difficult to many as well as creating community spirit.
“the Association are delighted to support the Ardrossan Christmas Decorations Committee in helping them hold their annual Christmas event as well as lighting up the town bringing Christmas cheer and fun to the community”.
John Kelly, Chairperson of CHA
