Our Glasgow North East team recently organised a 3 mile sponsored walk around Mugdock Country Park, raising over £500 for Team Carr Gomm.
The event, which was attended by both staff and the people we support, included a walk round the historical sites of the country park and a BBQ. A great day out was had by all, and what’s more, the team raised £500 in the process, which will go towards stomping out loneliness in communities across Scotland.
Sandra McKie, service manager, Glasgow North East Integrated Service, said: “It was such a good day, so much so that we’re thinking of turning it in to an annual event.
“Some of the people we support do feel isolated, so it was just amazing to have them with us feeling part of a bigger team. A number of them even felt that it’d be something they would like to do again with their own families.
“As for the staff, it was really rewarding for them to see those they support having so much fun and clearly getting a lot from the experience. We’ve had so much positive feedback, made even better by the fact we were able to raise some money along the way.”
