Social event for volunteers

Press release   •   Oct 25, 2016 08:36 BST

Health and social care volunteers in Moray will have their efforts recognised at an event in Elgin on Sunday.

More than 150 volunteers – whose ages range from 16 to 87 – have been invited to a social evening in the town hall.

The volunteer service has been running for five years and supports people on a one-to-one basis and in group activities across Moray.

Volunteering roles include community alarm responders, day service activities, buddies and supporting people in projects such as Greenfingers, Artisans and Harlequins.

Entertainment will be provided during the evening and Moray MSP Richard Lochhead will be guest speaker.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
