Caravan site are extra charitable this Christmas

CHRISTMAS sanctuary is being offered to the region’s homeless this festive season in Beattock.

Moffat Manor Country Park are offering five of their caravans for a week to homeless people or people who normally rely on food parcels.

The accommodation is available from December 20 to 27, with the park also providing meals and entertainment.

Communications assistant Colin MacDonald said: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

“Essentially, we are aiming to help people out who would perhaps normally go without. We want them to have a memory that will last instead of feeling isolated at this time of year.

“Any help in filling the caravans with people in need would be greatly appreciated.”

This is not the first time that the caravan park have opened their doors to those in need free of charge. Last winter, following the extensive floods in Carlisle, they offered accommodation to flood victims.

And the park also created a monthly free lunch club for seniors in Beattock and Moffat to tackle loneliness.


If you know anyone at risk of being homeless this Christmas, or are at risk yourself, call Colin on 01683 300313 to arrange accommodation.
