Okay, a thinly disguised heading to advertise the MHPS AGM. However, it is true that the short and lively formal business will be followed by snacks, drinks and socialising. A really good chance to meet fellow volunteers, the MHPS staff and the Board.
The AGM is open to all (only paid up members may vote) and will be held in Victoria House, Elgin IV30 1RQ at 17:30 on Wednesday 13th November 2019.
Volunteers are especially encouraged to attend but if unavailable, members can vote by post email or by proxy. Details will be sent by email to registered members.
Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Elgin, their members and the public who donated to the Rotary Club’s Christmas appeal. Moray HandyPerson Services (along with other local charities) gratefully received a cheque for £1100 in a presentation ceremony at the Eight Acres hotel on 14th February. I doubt that there has ever been a sweeter, kinder gift on Valentine’s Day! The generosity and consideration we receive from Rotary cannot be underestimated and we gratefully acknowledge their support.
Moray HandyPerson Services can now rent you a selection of mobility aids that includes mobility scooters, wheelchairs, rollators and crutches. See our Mobility Aids page for a full list and details of how to keep you or your loved ones moving.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service was formally presented by the Queen’s local representative, the Lord Lieutenant of Moray, Lt Col Grenville Johnston OBE OStJ TD CA at a celebratory BBQ held in Victoria House on the 2nd November.
The Award is all about the volunteers so we were very pleased to see so many coming along and being a part of the presentation ceremony. We were also very pleased to see so many supporters, including Richard Lochhead MSP, several Councillors, TsiMoray, NHS and other local charities.
Each year James Gibb generously make a donation to 6 charities across Scotland. This year they choose us, Moray HandyPerson Services, as one of those charities. As with all donations, we are very grateful for the support we receive from companies and individuals so that we can continue to deliver the valued and necessary services to vulnerable people across Moray. Thank you.
