COVID-19 Update


Due to the closure of churches and stay at home restrictions we are no longer receiving the regular monthly focus items donations. The demand for packs continues and may be more acute as financial impacts begin to hit across Inverclyde.

As an alternative to focus item donations we have set-up a TEXT Giving Scheme to allow our supporters to donate cash directly from your mobile phone account. Cash donations will then be used by Starter Packs Inverclyde to buy the items normally provided through the focus item donations.


We are also not able to hold any funding raising events.


Simply text SPI followed by your donation amount to 70085.


For example


SPI 5 to 70085 to donate £5.00

SPI 10 to 70085 to donate £10.00

SPI 20 to 70085 donate £20.00




After your donation text is received, you will be sent a text request to GIFTAID your donation which generates a further 25p from HMRC for each £1 donated to Starter Packs Inverclyde.


Thank you for your continued support.
