Connect Winter Coffee Club Celebrating Befriending Week
To celebrate Befriending Week we decided to launch our new Winter Coffee Club
We warmly invited our volunteers to come along on our opening morning 6th November 10.30-12 noon to The Coffee Shop St Nicholas Buccleuch, Dalkeith and to bring along their befriendee, or just come themselves
This was an opportunity for us to bring people together that wouldn’t usually get the chance and celebrate all the volunteers do for Connect, Volunteer Midlothian.
It was a brilliant success bringing lots of people together and there was a definite “buzz” about the place which was fantastic to hear.
We had a great mix of volunteers, clients and members of the church all enjoying company and conversation and altogether we had 22 turn up on the morning staying from 15 mins to 1 hour.
We hope this continues to be a success with the promise from volunteers to support and continue through the winter.
If people weren’t able to attend this time we look forward to welcoming them on 20th November 10.30am at St Nicholas and Buccleuch Coffee Shop, Dalkeith and then every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month and open it up to anyone looking for a chat and meet new people.
A Big thank you to the volunteers who came this morning to support us.
