DECEMBER 2017 – Christmas meal
We held our Christmas meal in Monifieth Bowling Club. Many thanks to the staff of the bowling club for making us feel so welcome and helping to make it such a success. Thank you so much to our team of willing volunteers who cooked a wonderful lunch for over 60 clients and volunteers. They worked so hard and ensured that everyone was well fed! Also a huge thanks to Sainsbury’s for supplying the food and gifts, Greg and Donald from Sainsbury’s for playing Santa, the 6th year pupils from Monifieth High School who came along and helped set up the room and welcomed our guests, the staff of Tesco who served the meal, Monifieth and District Rotary Club who transported some of our less able clients to and from the bowling club. It was lovely to see so many happy faces!

Making a donation
We are always extremely grateful for any monetary donations we receive. Donations can be made by cash or cheque made payable to “Monifieth Befriending Scheme”.
Thank you.

Leaving a legacy
Leaving a legacy to Monifieth Befrienders is one of the most wonderful gifts you could ever make. Any donation, no matter how small or how large, is important to us and will be wisely administered by our trustees. Your generosity could make a huge difference and even a little can mean a lot! We understand that family and friends come first but, once you have taken care of loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to Monifieth Befriending Scheme. Leaving a legacy simply involves adding a short paragraph (clause) to your will (including our name: Monifieth Befrienders and registered charity number: SC030685). We would suggest that you use a qualified solicitor to assist you with this.
