Thanks to the Co op Community Fund (of which we were a beneficiary last year), Dunbar Dementia Network have been able to distribute jigsaws and arts & craft materials to group members confined to home during the current pandemic.
Thank you to all who nominated DDN as their chosen charity. You have brought a wee bit of joy to many households.
IN LIGHT OF THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION, IT IS WITH MUCH REGRET THAT OUR WEEKLY CARERS GROUP MEETINGS HELD ON WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY IN THE BLEACHINGFIELD CENTRE, HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
HOWEVER, WE WILL CONTINUE TO CHAT AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER OVER THE TELEPHONE, AND LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING UP AGAIN AS SOON AS WE CAN. FOR ANY ENQUIRIES, PLEASE CONTACT:
Lorna Bunney, Group Co ordinator on 01620 870632 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
