Volunteer Recognition

L-R Bill Budge and Caroline Broomfield, volunteers with Laurandy Centre, Alan Farquhar a volunteer driver with Caithness Rural Transport and John Houston volunteer With Chest Heart Stroke Scotland.
In the Laurandy day Care centre in Wick volunteers were invited to attend the presentation of the Jean Macdonald Cup.  This cup provides recognition to an individual who volunteers with an organisation dealing with people in a caring role. For over 50 years Jean Macdonald  volunteered throughout the county in many organisations. In later years she was a volunteer with the Laurandy Day Centre where her baking skills went down a treat. It was her wish to donate a Cup for a dedicated volunteer.

This year the deserving winner was John Houston who has volunteered with Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland for 15 years.   Also receiving recognition were Alan Farquhar, a volunteer with Caithness Rural Transport and Bill Budge and Caroline Broomfield who both volunteer in the Laurandy Centre.
