News & Events
We have new befriending matches underway in the Stewartry area, some involving taking a dog along to a local older person! If you can help us in this area as a volunteer befriender, please call Shelley or Isobel on 01556 288427. Owning a dog is not essential!!
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!
