Strathcarron Hospice is appealing for volunteers to take part in their ‘Compassionate Neighbours’ campaign. They are looking for people who are willing to support someone with a long term illness at home.
Each situation is different but it may just be popping in for a cuppa and a chat, offering friendship and a listening ear, or perhaps helping them to continue to do things they enjoy. No specialist skills or knowledge are required, just a willingness to give a little time to help someone who may be feeling isolated or lonely.
More information about Strathcarron’s Compassionate Neighbours scheme, whether you are looking to volunteer or need support yourself, is available from the Hospice at 01324 826222, or contact Susan (susanhigh at nhs.net) or Mandy (mandyross2 at nhs.net)
This year’s World Day of Prayer service will take place on Friday 2nd March at 7.30pm in St Lucy’s Church, Hornbeam Road, Abronhill.
The service was written by Christian women in Suriname in South America and the theme is: “All God’s creation is very good!“
This is a day of prayer not only for women, but for everyone who cares about our world and those who live in it. So please join us and an estimated 3 million people around the world on Friday 2nd March.
