SHELTERED HOUSING ENTERTAINMENT IN FULL SWING THANKS TO COMMUNITY BURSARY DONATION
Wednesday, 08 August 2018
Residents of Pleyfauld Very Sheltered Housing are enjoying a superb entertainment programme following a £500 donation from CALA’s community bursary fund.
The programme, which comprises an afternoon tea event plus performances from local bands and bingo nights, was created by Grace Reid and three fellow residents.
Grace said: “The aim of the activities we organise is to help all 31 tenants feel young at heart and give everyone some fantastic opportunities to socialise and have fun.
“We were delighted to be selected as one of CALA’s chosen groups. Some of the funds were used to organise an afternoon tea which went down a treat and was enjoyed by all.”
Pleyfauld Very Sheltered Housing’s afternoon tea was attended by Laura Carle, PA/Office Manager at CALA Homes (North). She said: “I’d like to thank the lovely residents of Pleyfauld Very Sheltered Housing for inviting me along to their afternoon tea.
“It was a pleasure to chat to them all and enjoy one of their events first hand. It was lovely watching everyone having a great time while tucking into some delicious cakes and listening to live music.
“Getting the chance to see how our community bursary can really benefit local groups was truly special.”
Other successful recipients of CALA’s community bursary initiative this year include Sunrise Partnership, Spikin Autism and More (SAAM), Friends of Orchard Brae, Printfield Community Project, Seaton Community Church, Grampian Child Bereavement Network, Aberdeen Riding Club, Home-Start Aberdeen, Supporting Children in Learning for Life (SCILL) and Police Scotland Youth Volunteers Aberdeen.
