Kincardine and Deeside Befriending is grateful to the people from Deeside and Kincardine and Mearns who responded to their Christmas Appeal. So far the appeal has raised £2,500. The amount of money raised seems to reflect the public’s view on the importance of reducing social isolation in older people.
The Spar Team in Stonehaven raised £1,000 by nominating the charity as a beneficiary of their carry bag initiative, the Friends of K&D Befriending raised £250 plus there were many donations from individual supporters and well wishers who want to help old folk.
This money will be used to sustain the extra 20 places the charity created last year in response to the ever increasing demand from old people for companionship.
