NO BISCUIT WEEK 2018

It is that time of year again when we put down our digestives and to pick up a pear instead.

That’s right Monday 23rd July 2018 – Friday 27th July 2018 is officially NO BISCUIT WEEK!

As a healthy working lives employer Food Train are proud to promote healthy choices for staff and volunteers in the work place, and No Biscuit Week is a brilliant reminder and motivator to give these choices some consideration.

We will be getting into the spirit of No Bisuit Week at Food Train by sharing pictures of our healthy eating choices along with other health related information that encourages good health decisions such as health advice, healthy recipes and fitness achievements. Keep your eyes peeled for them on our social media channels! 

In prepartion for the week we've been checking out these excellent resources:

I do like to be beside the seaside!

Our Dumfries Friends members enjoyed a wee trip to Southerness this month thanks to an invite from one of our volunteer befrienders, Isobel, who was a great hostess! You can see the famous Southerness Lighthouse in the background in the photo as well as those who attended. A great time was had by all.  #kindness   

Millport Sponsored Walk

Volunteers from Food Train Renfrewshire completed a sponsored lap of the Isle of Cumbrae. Under blazing summer skies the volunteers successfully completed the walk despite the familiar Millport attractions of ice cream, fair rides, or a cooling paddle in the sea! £350 was raised. A huge thanks for everyones efforts.

Glasgow Update

Its been a busy first half of 2018 here in Glasgow and we are supporting more local older people than ever before to maintain their independence at home by providing them with access to fresh groceries.  Our Friends service is also working to reduce social isolation in the North East of the city and several members have enjoyed group outings to Loch Lomond, Summerlee Heritage Museum, Scotland Street Museum and The People's Palace amongst other places.
