If you picked up a copy of the Sunday Mail this weekend, i hope you had a chance to read the piece on ScotsCare. The article includes interviews with staff, volunteers, clients and even scotsCare ambasador, Lorraine Kelly.
We recently recieved this letter from one of our Bawtry Rd residents who wanted to thank ScotsCare for the help they had recieved and the difference it has made to their life.
Happy Burns Day everyone, we are all going out tonight to enjoy some haggis - hope you are too.
Forget the Oscar nominations, we have a winner in our search for Scot of the Year (drum roll).......
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate Scottish achievement. In previous years we have asked you for Scotland’s top music and comedy moments among others. This year we are launching the search for Scotland’s Greatest Sporting Moment.
We have just finished making a film about ScotsCare which focuses on our community of people and the important role that everyone plays. It’s nice to be part of a community in a big city like London where it’s easy to feel alone and like no one is really interested in you. At ScotsCare, our community consists of; charity trustees, clients of ScotsCare, staff, volunteers, fundraisers, donor and legators. Sometimes people are more than one thing, I can think of one guy who is a client, volunteer and fundraiser.
If people don’t need help from the charity then they can often become involved in simple ways like putting up posters about the charity or running a 10k to raise funds. Volunteering is a really popular way to become part of our community. If you don’t have a lot of time, you could help out on a summer or winter day trip or spend one day working on reception answering phones.
