Recieving an award

Volunteer Team of the Year Award and Inspiring Volunteer Awards

04.06.2015 - 22:09

We are very proud to have been awarded Volunteer Team of the Year Award by Volunteer Midlothian.  The award, presented by Midlothian's Lord Lieutenant, is a tribute to all our extraordinary volunteers who give up their time to support vulnerable families. We are particularly honoured that we were chosen to receive it by the staff of Volunteer Midlothian. What a marvellous end to Volunteers Week.

Well done Team!  You really deserve it.

Individual volunteers also received much deserved Inspiring Volunteer awards

  • Val Clapton for her long and dedicated service to Home Link.
  • Audrey Speed for supporting multiple families and for extending her training to take on Antenatal families.
  • Christine Brown, who was invited to the Lord Provost's ceremony to receive her award for her extraordinary dedication and particulary her work with families from abroad.

Our Crafting Day

29.04.2015 - 13:04

Hard to believe it was sunny last week.  We spent a morning sharing simple crafting techniques with our volunteers.

The volunteers will be able to take these fun activities to the families they visit in Edinburgh and Midlothian.

Today we distributed wonderful garden kits to our volunteers.  They will take them to the families they visit to get them engaged in their gardens and local parks.  We know the three year olds are going to love their Grow Wild kits -  packets of wild flower seeds, plant markers and best of all a Bee House!

The lovely kits were free from Grow Wild  which inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals to transform local spaces by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers.

We just can't wait to see what comes up!
