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
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.
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.

Did you spot us and give us a wave at us in the Guid Nychburris 2018 parade on Saturday 16 June in Dumfries? We had a great time promoting Food Train, as you can see.
