Last night, we enjoyed a great meal at the Retirement Centre, along with our amazing volunteers from the Gambia Shop in Stornoway. It was an opportunity for everyone to meet together, catch up about all things Gambia and have a laugh!
Certificates were provided, through the Volunteer Centre, for their work, the effects of which are felt thousands of miles away in the Gambia.
Here are a few photos…
We owe a big thanks to the Co-op (Stornoway) and it’s customers. We have been chosen, along with the Western Isles Kidney Patients, to be their till bucket charity of the month. All proceeds from the buckets this month will be split between the two charities. Very encouraging for us and the other charity, we look forward to hearing from the Coop on what amounts were raised. Please give generously as all funds are put to maximum use and have a tangible benefit.
A Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the Gambia donation box at door of the High Free Church which recently raised £144.00 for the work in The Gambia. Many thanks to all.
