Tears Flow at Invergordon Charity Bash

Invergordon’s Birchwood Highland office was buzzing with excitement as staff at the mental health charity’s Easter Ross base revealed the new-look interior.

Manager Lynn Keith and her team welcomed both the people who use the service and special guests to the newly-refurbished offices. Everyone was especially thrilled to welcome Roy MacGregor and his wife Morag on the day as it gave them the opportunity to thank the couple for the long-standing support they have given the charity. The couple admired the new quiet room, drop-in space and the sign which makes the charity hugely visible on the High Street.

Roy and Morag were presented with gifts, while speeches from service users explaining the difference Birchwood Highland had made to their lives left most of the happy gang in tears.

Team Manager Lynn Keith said: “All of the direct support we give to the people who use our service is funded, but donations from the community really are vital. They enable the service users to enjoy social activities and outings – the things that make life enjoyable. We are very, very grateful for the generosity of the people of Invergordon and the wider Ross-shire community.”
