As we come to the end of Volunteers Week, I would just like to thank all our committee members and the people of the North Lochs area who over the last 15months have stepped up in one way or another to make a difference.

Our Foodbank, Prescription delivery drivers and our shopping volunteers who made a difference for so many people in those first few months of lockdown. Our new committee who do so much work behind the scenes to make sure all our varied activities run smoothly.

I would also like to thank the local businesses who stepped up to help with their own contributions that helped the N. L. C. A. achieve so much.

Finally, I would like to thank the unknown individuals in our community, who volunteer in their own way everyday, getting a newspaper or some groceries, making a quick phone call to a neighbour to see how they are. All these small acts of kindness add up to so much over time.
