Stornoway Rotary Club presentation today

Many grateful thanks to Stornoway Rotarians for their warm welcome and attentive reception for our project presentation at lunchtime today.

I was immensely honoured to be invited to present the project to Stornoway Rotary Club today and to be treated to an excellent lunch at the Caladh Hotel. The project was very well received and the technical equipment worked together perfectly.

I found it quite incredible to look back at the past year in the project and how much has been achieved and commenced already. I’m also immensely humbled by the generous and warm reception that the project is receiving across the islands.

The entire team loves the work that we feel privileged to be doing and we are grateful for the tremendous support that the community has offered so generously and that was so abundantly¬†echoed by the Rotary Club members at today’s meeting.

Volunteers and Intergenerational Work

On Friday, Bellann from the Volunteer Service brought two young people working towards their Saltire Award and building their CVs into a local care home to enjoy masterclasses in making duff and splitting herring. Three residents gladly shared their skills and experience and the volunteers assisted with making and offering tea and cake to the residents.

The volunteers are going to support our project with Auditorium Sessions and Events at An Lanntair to see another side of care and community working.
