A busy Spring for our Group

April, May & June 2023

A busy Spring for our Group, kicking off with an afternoon tea party fundraiser for Dunbar Day Centre Mini Bus Appeal, when we raised an amazing £228.45! We also enjoyed a wonderful trip to Prestonpans Museum; participated in “Tales from Our Kitchen Table sessions; a picnic at Lauderdale Park to celebrate National Volunteers’ Week and an Afternoon Tea at Winterfield Golf Club to celebrate National Carers’ Week.

Our Zoom sessions were enhanced by visits from Koren from the Scottish Book Trust, Claire from Vegetarian from Life, and Fiona from Holyrood Palace, and we were joined at one of our regular weekly meetings by Elizabeth from Handicabs Lothian.

Jan, Feb, Mar 2023

A busy start to the year when we welcomed home our beautiful Processions banner (now hanging in Dunbar Library). We then enjoyed a series of Art Therapy Workshops with local artist, Barbara Rowell, as well as our usual Chair Exercise/Relaxation sessions, Crafts and Bingo. We had a wonderful trip to Holyrood Palace, enjoyed poetry sessions and also raised £200 for Project Linus at one of our famed fundraising afternoon tea parties!

Autumn/Winter 2023

We finished off 2022 with a wonderful Christmas Lunch at Winterfield Golf Club, having enjoyed a variety of activities over the past 3 months: crafts, chair exercise, guest speakers, bingo and a fantastic Book Week Scotland event with Edinburgh poet Ken Cockburn (thanks to Sharing a Story CIC and the Scottish Book Trust).
