A huge congratulations to all our Befrienders! Your commitment and support to the region’s more vulnerable young people was duly recognised at the D&G Life Awards 2017 ceremony at Easterbrook Hall on Friday night, 24 November.
Delight in winning the ‘Voluntary Group/Charity of the Year’ Award was only surpassed by being declared winners of the overall ‘Outstanding Contribution to D&G’ Award! Catriona Macdonald, Befriender and Alex Dickson, Project Manager were honoured to represent the Project and receive the well-earned accolades.
Thanks to all at D&G Life and those in any way involved in the Awards for making it such a great occasion.
If anyone can spare a couple of hours per week- and would like to know more about the role of volunteer befrienders throughout D&G and the massive difference that can be made to a young life – then please get in touch.
