Bags of fun for Contact the Elderly

AUG
20

Dozens of Contact the Elderly guests enjoyed bags of fun at a five-star Aberdeen event this weekend thanks to a supermarket’s community help scheme.

We were awarded a £2,900 grant by Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative, which was used to fund a tea party at the Pitfodels hotel for guests and volunteers from the city’s ten Contact the Elderly groups.

Support Officer for the charity Caroline Peter said: “This really was a fabulous afternoon out for everyone. The elegant surroundings and first-class attention were a real treat for guests and volunteers. We were thrilled to be selected by Tesco to benefit from the scheme and the support from The Marcliffe was the icing on the cake. The assistance of both  organisations is enormously appreciated and demonstrates how the power of community spirit can go a long way in helping to combat loneliness.”
