The Brimmond Challenge
The Living Well Project is a charity set up in 2010, with the aim of supporting isolated and vulnerable people in the community of North Aberdeen.
They offer a Befriending Service where volunteers are matched on a one-to-one basis, with an older person. They also run the Living Well Cafés which provide social support for those affected by memory loss and dementia, their families and carers. One of these Cafés is held at Ferryhill Church although is sadly not currently taking place due to Covid-19 restrictions.
As many of you may know, core funding for The Living Well Project was withdrawn from 31 March 2021. They are continuing to seek alternative sources of funding but meanwhile Linda and Jeanette have decided to embark upon a challenge to raise funds!
The ladies, along with a team of Occupational Therapists from ARI, are planning to do a continual ‘dawn till dusk’ climb (well, 7 am till 7 pm!) up and down Brimmond Hill on Saturday 5 June and would so appreciate if you could lend your support to this worthwhile cause.
They have set up a JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/brimmondchallenge where you can pledge money to The Living Well Project. Alternatively, you can donate in cash or by cheque if that’s easier for you.
