Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, our Afternoon Tea scheduled to be held at West Barns Bowling Club on 10 October 2019 at 2 30 pm will now be held at Winterfield Golf Club.
Our new second Carers Support Group got off to a flying start today. Connections made around the table were heartwarming – can tell that this is going to be a fun group!! Watch out when our two groups get together for social outings and events – watch this space…….
A huge welcome to our new volunteers, Amy and Evelyn and many thanks to Thursday group volunteers and members (Beth, Helen, Moira & Kenny) for coming along to welcome our new friends.
Dunbar Dementia Carers Support Group Co-ordinator and two of its volunteers attended a basic first aid training course. This was funded by a portion of a generous donation recently received, for which, we are extremely grateful.
Our annual Macmillan Afternoon Tea was a great success once again. Maggie appeared with her legendary meringues (Birthday Boy Kenny managed two of them, as well as his birthday cake!!). Congratulated ‘Golden’ couple, Nesta & John, and paid tribute to the great work carried out by Macmillan…….all go!
One or two donations for Macmillan still to come in. Thanks to all for joining in, baking and bringing treats to share.
The rain couldn’t dampen our spirits when we enjoyed a wonderful get together with staff and volunteers at The Backlands to celebrate the official opening of the Sanctuary Garden. The Carers Group planted roses to commemorate the lives of Mary & Lee, two group members who we miss so much. It will be lovely to watch these roses bloom and grow, continuing to give us joy and pleasure, as Mary and Lee did.
Our thanks to The Ridge for allowing us to be a part of this project.??
