Long Service Awards

1st September 2017


D&G Befriending > News and Events > Awards > Long Service Awards

On Friday evening, we celebrated 20 years of Befriending and had wonderful evening at The Usual Place, Dumfries. About 130 befrienders, staff, trustees and supporters enjoyed an informal evening with drinks, canapes and great music from Fairfarren (Faye and Karen).

Long service awards were presented to 7 volunteers for their outstanding loyalty and support. The highlight of the evening was the words spoken by three young people who benefited from having a befriender – as they shared their appreciation of the positive impact made in their lives.

Thank you to all who came along and contributed to an unforgettable evening and to DGHP for sponsoring us.

Alex Dickson, Project Manager said “the heartfelt words of the young people just confirmed why befriending is so worthwhile – and I am very proud to be involved in a charity which changes lives. This region is so indebted to our wonderful volunteers. ”
