Thank you to Gary Miller and his colleagues at the DWP for choosing Black Isle Cares to receive the profits from their dress down day in January.
We all appreciate your support.
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.
This was BIC Meals on Wheels way of thanking the team of volunteers for all their hard work and commitment to the service.
