We have recently awarded the Barmill Jolly Beggars Burns Club a grant of £500 to buy a book, a magazine, a packet of biscuits, a packet of sweets and a pen to support their local seniors in Dalry, Kilbirnie, Barrmill and surrounding rural areas, Burnhouse, Ardrossan and Kilwinning, Beith, Johnstone and Paisley who are currently socially isolating during the COVID-19 isolation period.

The items will help to maintain the mental and physical wellness of the 76 seniors who received a pack.

Donald Reid, group leader, commented ‘I can’t thank Home Instead Charities enough for the kindness and for … keeping Kathleen and I extremely busy, but in the nicest way possible – helping others at a difficult time and making them smile! What a wonderful gift.’
