A huge thank you to Age Scotland who have awarded PEP a Certificate of Excellence in recognition of our work to ‘combat loneliness and isolation in Scotland’s older people’.
It is always nice to have our work in the community recognised, especially by an organisation who is the leading national authority on older people, age and ageing.
This month Mary Richardson reached the fantastic milestone of 100 years old and all her friends from the Chummy Club were there to help her celebrate. Ronny the entertainer came along to the Queensberry Bowling Club to help get the party started. The group enjoyed a lovely lunch prepared by Moira and the club volunteers.
There was singing, dancing, and a huge birthday cake!
It was also Abbies 13th Birthday and it was delightful that they were able to share a party together… 87 years apart!
Thanks to everyone for helping to make Mary’s day so enjoyable.
