Creative Aberdeenshire" Exhibition 23rd September – 3rd October

Creative Aberdeenshire is the opportunity for you to take part in an exhibition to showcase the talent of local people. It will be held at the Garioch Heritage Centre 23rd September – 3rd October 2021.
This is not a competition but a way for folk from Aberdeenshire to create an exhibition for others to enjoy.
There may be the chance to donate the items exhibited (should you wish) into a silent auction to raise funds for Aberdeenshire Charities.

Fish and Chip Vests

I want to give a big ‘Thank you’ to all the ladies who so generously knitted ‘fish and chip vests’, blankets, hats, mitts, jumpers and cardigans for sending to Malawi. An amazing 358 items were handed in and will be leaving from Dundee in the next few months.
If you would like to help or to receive a copy of the quick and easy pattern for the vests and hats please phone Sheila on 01651 871957.

Aberddeenshire Foodbank

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
