CONTACT the Elderly’s Dunblane group enjoyed a trip to Loch Katrine thanks to the fundraising efforts of one of its volunteers.

Bobby Lennox completed the ‘Grasmere Gallop’ in Cumbria earlier in the year to raise funds for his group to enjoy a summer outing.

The volunteers and guests enjoyed an afternoon and boat trip at the popular Perthshire destination.

Lorna Dunbar, Support Officer at Contact the Elderly, said:

“Bobby did a fantastic job to raise funds for this trip and we are so pleased to see everyone had such a lovely trip to Loch Katrine.”

Contact the Elderly organises free monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for older people who live alone. Volunteer drivers collect guests and accompany them for an afternoon tea in a volunteer host’s home.
