Our Friends members in the Stewartry area enjoyed a lovely trip to the Old Schoolhouse Tea Room at Ringford on the A75 on 1 May and enjoyed a good healthy meal, chat and company. Great fun!
Thanks to our local volunteers for helping to make this happen on a regular basis. #kindness
A befriender training workshop was held in Annan recently for some old and new volunteers to keep them up to date on the role and service. This is a key requirement under the Quality in Befriending scheme that we have accreditation in. Thanks to all who attended.
Our Friends members from Mid/Upper Nithsdale enjoyed a lovely trip to Heathhall Garden Centre (and Pat's Pantry) in the April sunshine this week and had a lovely lunch, good chat and time for shopping. Great fun!
An enormous thank you to Rural Stirling Housing Association for the very genrous donation of £1500 which will go towards the purchase of a new van. We have been fundraising for a new van which will help us to sustain our essential service and continue to reach as many vulnerable older people as possible througout Stirlingshire. Pictured below is Tommy Buick (volunteer), Fran Thow (Regional Manager), Mark Griffiths (Vice Chair Rural Stirling Housing Association) and Pat McPake (volunteer). We have a bag pack planned for Saturday 7th of April 12-3pm in Sainsburys (Drip Road) and we have an army of volunteers giving up their Saturday to help us! Please come along and show your support, many thanks to the dedicated volunteers giving up their time to raise much needed funds.
