News & Events
Here are some photos from our 'Silver Sunday' event held on 7 October 2018 in the Annan Bowling Club with people from Annandale & Eskdale, Nithsdale and Stewartry attending a fun afternoon out with a 'silver' themed quiz, dancing and a raffle with great food, drink and company - same again next year!! Thank you to Morrisons, M&S and Tesco for very generous food and drink donations.
We held our latest befriender induction and training workshop in our Head Office training room this month where we hit the magical number of 200 volunteer befrienders having attended over the past few years! Here are the latest recruits with Scott and Jane. Photo by volunteer Carol.
Our Dumfries Friends 'Group' members recently enjoyed the thrilling story of Sir Ernest Shackleton's adventures in 1914-1917 to the Antarctic and South Georgia so well delivered by local traveller Ian Wilson who was out on the Falklands also. A great story enjoyed by our members and volunteer helpers. Thanks to the Troqueer Family Church for the use of their premises (great partnership working and sharing of community resources) and to our customer Margaret for baking the cup cakes! Lovely. We also had Stand Up Bingo and Musical Bingo to round the day off before heading home. Magic.
