Another year has gone by, and this is our time to reflect, evaluate and to look at the future. It has been a year of massive growth, with the completion of our space at Ludgate to the relocating of our Charity shop. 2023 saw the introduction of many new projects including Café Xtra and our after-school club food provision, as well as building on the things that we do so well… helping people.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone and express my gratitude for sticking with us through a year that included three massive moves while continuing to help us to successfully support thousands of vulnerable Clackmannanshire residents.
Thank you to the staff and volunteer team, for never losing their dedication and passion, for contributing their invaluable experience so that the Gate can continue to be the successful. No role at the Gate is more or less important than another from frontline staff to those who quietly work behind the scenes, you all make the Gate.
Thank you to our trustees, who tirelessly and voluntarily share their time, and knowledge to make sure that the Gate fulfils its role in helping the most disadvantaged in our Community.
Thank you to our donors, partners, and other supporters, without your continued backing we would not be where we are today.
Finally thank you to the people in the community who trust us to help them in their time of need.
I would like to wish you all a happy and peaceful New Year. See you in 2024 for another fantastic year.
