Our quine Lizzie

2 January 2020

Lizzie our quine

Lizzie is very sociable and loves to catch up with her friends. Sadly, over the past two years, Lizzie’s health has deteriorated significantly.

Lizzie has been supported through our community Outreach service in Aberdeenshire since 1989, and it’s no surprise that many of our colleagues hold dear memories of her.

Previously, she would have been out in the community almost every day, either attending her much loved craft group or voluntary job at Wood Recyclability. She's a regular visitor to Pittodrie, wearing her Aberdeen Football Club scarf and a big smile on her face.

Sadly, due to her declining health, she has had to give up many of the activities she once enjoyed and now spends most of her days inside her flat with limited social opportunities.

Each year however, thanks to very generous funding secured through the Cornerstone Foundation and the John Gordon's Charitable Fund, our Outreach service organises a day trip for the people they support.

This November, they enjoyed trips to Moray, visiting Brodie Country Fair and Fort George. Despite the weather, everybody made the most of it and had a fantastic time catching up with old friends.

The big smile on Lizzie's face when she was waiting for the bus, surrounded by her friends, said it all. Having something to look forward to and being truly included means the world to her.

Thank you for giving the people we support these important and hugely appreciated opportunities. They just wouldn’t be possible without your generosity.

A special thanks too from Lizzie, who just loves making more precious memories with her friends.
