Big Thank You Event!
On Monday 3 June, members of our Volunteer Managers Forum came together to organise a joint event for all their volunteers at the National Mining Museum in Newtongrange. This is the third year that members of the Forum have come together to offer this Big Thank You Event and is a great way of bringing volunteers from different organisations together to celebrate.
Organisations involved this year were Ageing Well Midlothian, Health in Mind, Mayfield & Easthouses Development Trust, National Mining Museum Scotland and Volunteer Midlothian.
Over 70 local volunteers attended on the day and enjoyed a session of body boosting bingo, free tours of the Mining Museum, a buffet lunch, gardening activities, a raffle and a chance to mingle with other volunteers. We were delighted to be joined by Councillor Debbi McCall (pictured right), Volunteering Champion for Midlothian Council, Councillors Margot Russell, Colin Cassidy and Dianne Alexander.
