We are just coming to the end of a terrific national Volunteers' Week - awards, sunshine and a lovely Barbecue.
We were delighted when an astounded Adele McGowan was awarded Volunteer of the Year at the splendid Midlothian Volunteer Award ceremony at Newbattle Abbey College. It was well deserved - Adele has supported an amazing 11 families for us since 2010. She is now moving into work and we'll miss her but we wish her all the very best.
Our Barbecue was threatened by rumbling thunder but somehow it stayed warm and sunny and it was lovely to see so many volunteers, old and new and their children.
