Nursery visit

We had the pleasure of welcoming the children of Rephad Nursery on Thursday 21st December.
They sang some songs and then had a chat with our members before presenting us with a cheque for £100, which they raised themselves. They were a joy to have along.

Merry Christmas

Christmas Lunch

Today members and invited guests came along to celebrate the festive season.
Chairperson Mairi McRobert, warmly thanked everyone for coming along and introduced Reverend Pam Bellis who, after a humorous speech, said grace. Everyone then enjoyed a most delicious lunch of potato soup, Turkey with all the trimmings which was followed by the most delicious dessert of Chocolate and Irish Cream Bombe and sparkling wine flowed freely. It was finished of with tea or coffee, homemade mince pies and after eight mints. Everyone was sufficiently ‘stuffed’ afterwards. Haha. Entertainment for the afternoon was the fabulous Collette & Davy, who’ve been along to the Centre before, and once again they didn’t disappoint! Everyone was singing along and a few danced. All in all a fabulous day.
Thanks as always to the staff who make the day run so smoothly.

Pamper Afternoon

We were visited by today by Julie Reid and 10 students from John Niven Campus who kindly offered to treat us to manicures and hand massages. It was very much enjoyed by all our members, and staff!
Thank you very much for coming along and hopefully we will see you all again soon

Christmas Fair

The Day Centre hosted its very first Christmas Fair on Saturday 2nd of December, 11am until 3pm. We had 23 tables booked, selling a variety of lovely items. There were Jewellery, cards & candles, knitting and the very popular home baking! There was also a raffle table with a P&O crossing for a car and two persons as the top prize! Other prizes were, hospitality for 2 at Stair Park Football ground, children’s scooters & ride on truck, assorted small kitchen appliances, sweets, boozy gifts, prints from Steven Brown, laundry basket filled with cleaning supplies and that was just a few!
We raised just over £2100.00, which is an amazing amount for our charity funds.
A massive Thank You to everyone who, donated raffle prizes, booked a table and came along on the day.
Hopefully we will see you all again next year.
Thanks must also go to the staff who, not only worked away behind the scenes but  gave freely of their time on the day and, the members themselves, buying and selling raffle tickets. We couldn’t do this without you all.dav
