Warburtons Continue To Support Ayrshire Charity

Thursday, 30 July 2009

Warburtons, Scotland's favourite family baker, is supporting the Ayrshire charity, Touch the World, for the fifth consecutive year.

Warburtons 'rolled' out a welcome to the 100 Scottish youngsters who attended the Touch the World training camp on Saturday, July 25 and Tuesday, July 28 by supplying bread and rolls during their stay. This donation of 150 All in One Loaves and 100 rolls will mark the thousandth loaf delivered to the charity by Warburtons.

Touch The World Ministries UK (TTW) was established in 2001 with the purpose of helping young people catch a vision for mission work. The Touch the World Ministries team leaders and members flew from America and all over the UK to join other youngsters to take part in the annual summer camp at the Scottish Agricultural College, at Auchincruive, Ayr. The 100 youngsters are in Scotland for one week and have a hectic programme planned.

During the weekly camp the teams are being trained in sports, mime, sign dancing, puppetry, music, drama, youth work, light construction and community work, before embarking on various charitable missions.  The youngsters will work with a local orphanage in Bulgaria and take part in mission trips to local communities throughout Portugal, London, Orkney, Ireland and East Ayrshire.

Ian Connell, general manager, Warburtons Scotland, said: "We are delighted to support Touch the World for the fifth year running. Over the years we have been impressed by the work undertaken to provide the youngsters with invaluable skills which will support them in their charitable work."

Steve Meehan, a representative for Touch the World, said:  "We greatly appreciate Warburtons offering to help us feed our special visitors for the fifth year running. The family baker is providing us with enough bread to keep the group in breakfasts and lunches during their stay here in Ayrshire and I'm sure this kind donation will help to make their visit all the more memorable. We appreciate their continued support. "
