Employment Skills Workshop

On February 13th BIC Trustee Sheena Ross and Highland Home Carers SDS Community Teams Facilitator Angie MacDonald, attended an Employment Skills workshop for S3 students in Fortrose Academy.
They gave a talk to the students about working in care and the values and benefits of working locally for BIC/HHC.  The pupils were as always a credit to the school.  Perhaps we’ll have some future recruits.

The Meals of Wheels Thank You Meal

On Saturday evening BIC trustees, Lesley and Paula the MOW administrator’s and all but three of the MOW volunteers went out for a dinner at the Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club restaurant.  Without the help of the volunteers, Meals on Wheels would not work.  The volunteers not only provide a hot meal but also a friendly, familiar face and help out with anything else our customer’s require.  They make such a difference to many peoples lives.

Lesley says;

This was BIC Meals on Wheels way of thanking the team of volunteers for all their hard work and commitment to the service.
