Covid-19: Thank-you Volunteers!

June 1-7 is Volunteer week. 

Thank you to all our magnificent volunteers who have been doing so much to help the vulnerable and the shielding during these most unusual times.  Probably none of you will make it onto the cover of Vogue magazine, but you all deserve to be there.  Well done!

Covid-19: A chance to donate. – Thank you!

A huge Thank You to all those who donated to the Food, Fact, Friends food bank last Saturday (see below)  It was a magnificent response and will help ensure that those in our community who need help at this time can be supported.

 

Last week’s post.

This coming Saturday, May 30th, there is an opportunity to donate items to the Food, Fact, Friends foodbank that operates in Woodburn and Penicuik.   From 1pm to 3pm they will have a table in the car park outside Woodburn Miners’ Club where you can drop off any non-perishable foods eg cereals, tinned soups, pasta, rice, tinned fruit/veg, toiletries, nappies/pullups, diluting juice etc.

Covid-19:Dalkeith Delivers

A group of dedicated volunteers have been quietly making and delivering hot food to vulnerable families in the Dalkeith & District Community Council area, from Dalkeith Miners’ Club, three times a week, for four weeks now.  They were surprised on the morning of the anniversary of VE Day, Friday May 8th, to receive a video message acknowledging their efforts and encouraging them to kepp up the good work from the newly appointed Lord Lieutenant of Midlothian.  Over many years, Dalkeith Miners Club has been a centre of support for our community and once again it has become a venue from where volunteers go out into our community to assist.
