Bingo Fundraiser

What a brilliant night we had, the atmosphere was so happy, with jokes and laughter that everyone definitely enjoyed themselves. 

The prizes as always were excellent; duvet & pillows, trays & oven gloves, slow cooker, electric, tin opener, fruit and vegetable baskets, towel bale and more! Then came the raffle with bottles, biscuits, smellies for him & her, jewellery, flowers, vase, oh! and much much more! 

We would like to thank  all of the lovely folks who came along and the staff for giving freely of their time to help and especially Margaret and her team who baked gingerbreads, shortbread, millionaire shortbread and made tablet which disappeared very quickly! 

We raised just over £1000 which will be used to benefit the centre and its members. 

Thank you once again. 

Volunteer Awards


Today at Burns House our volunteers were given an award for their contributions and commitment to our centre. Well done and a very big thank you, Andy and Laura. 


Locharbriggs Lunch Club Visit

How lovely it was to welcome the ladies from Locharbriggs today. They come along twice a year to enjoy some activities and entertainment.

The kitchen staff were very busy this week making sure there was a good supply of home baking for our sales table. Gingerbread , fruit loaf, scones, cupcakes, doughnuts Easter krispie nests and tablet to name but a few. And I’ll tell you….. there was nothing left!!
Our lunch today was sweet potato soup, roast pork with the trimmings followed by strawberry trifle, tea and coffee.
After a wee raffle, Jim Pratt spent the rest of the afternoon entertaining us with his varied repertoire of songs and tall tales.
Everyone enjoyed a little sing-a-long with him.
We couldn’t believe that after the lunch all had enjoyed, they still managed to squeeze in tea or coffees and a cream meringue!! ~_~
It was such a great day we look forward to having you back again soon.
