Club impressed with work of Home Start charity

The Inner Wheel Club of Girvan began this year with an enjoyable lunch at President Agnes Gibson’s home.

On this occasion we raised money for Sightsavers which was her choice of charity to benefit from the event. In February another charity to benefit from a club donation was Home-Start.

It is an organisation offering support, friendship and practical help to parents with pre-school children.

Two members from the Wigtownshire Home-Start group impressed us with the work carried out by staff and volunteers in that area. They provide weekly support for families not only in the home but through local social groups which are good for the parents - and fun for the children!

The benefits to families who are experiencing problems of one kind or another were shown to be well appreciated. Apparently Wigtownshire and Kilmarnock groups are the only ones in this part of Scotland. The Wigtownshire Home-Start telephone number is 01776 706984 where the Co-ordinator is Mary Wilson.
