The start of a new year which we hope to be Covid Free!! We continue to advertise our charity and all we can offer on West Sound Radio which would change to Greatest Hits radio soon enough. Spreading the message load and clear throughout the region.
New Year, new donators, Stuart Kennedy, & Jardine Funeral Directors.
Dumfries Devorgilla members took an the challenge of cycling from Dumfries to Stranraer (on a static bike) expecting to take 12 hours, they worked so hard between them they managed to get back to Dumfries as well. Raising more than £1500 in funds with each mile.
April’s Shand Family Concert held in the D.B.C.C. was a huge success, both for the audience and the charity funds, so much so they have promised to return again in the future. Another new donation came in this month from June Marchbank who swam the equivalent of the English Channel raising the sum of £600 well done and thank you June.
This Spring the charity made the decision to spend more of the donation money on taxis to make sure that no-one missed a vital appointment at whichever hospital they had to visit if they could not arrange transport. This service has been well used since we started.
Closing our fourth financial year in May, it is very encouraging that the Charity goes from strength to strength continuing to offer moral & emotional support to both gents and their partners, helping them through their diagnosis.
