It doesn’t seem like it has been almost a since Volunteers Week was in full swing! June has been a busy month but we made sure we took the time to celebrate with our volunteers and thank them for their huge contribution to what we do.

On the Tuesday we held a volunteer lunch for our volunteers at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre were a great spread was put on by The Cherry Tree Cafe team.

On the Wednesday we also held a wee celebration up at the Applefield Garden at Gartnavel Royal Hospital where the Green Gym were along to lend us a hand.

We also had a special celebration as one of our long serving volunteers achieved a significant milestone just before Volunteers Week – over 800 hours volunteering with us! Absolutely amazing – thank you!

A massive thanks to all the volunteers that contribute to and support our work – it is very much appreciated! You can check out some of the photos below!

One Big Picnic One Big Community is a free event for the people by the people from 12-4pm on Sunday 3 September in George Square.

The aim of the event is to bring people together by creating a space for sharing food and a wee blether, sitting next to each other, showing understanding to differences regardless of background, cultural, religious, sexual orientation, social or educational status, homelessness or wealth. Highlighting Glasgow is indeed a city of caring people – people make Glasgow!

The event brings together community projects which prepare and serve free meals/provide food parcels on a regular basis  to those in need, such as the elderly, homeless and destitute. We believe that everyone has the right to good accessible food and should be treated fairly and with dignity. Therefore we will be serving wonderful dishes from around the world to all.

Unfortunately the organisers have had to cancel this event due to the weather forecast for strong winds and even stronger gusts which are well above acceptable limits for the safe use of inflatables (bouncy castles etc) and borderline acceptable limits for the safe use of open fronted marquees. It is hoped the event will be re-organised for later in the year.
