It’s that time of year when our committee starts to gather names for our free community over 60s Christmas lunch with entertainment.

This year in order to secure funding for our lunch in 2020 the committee have decided to reduce the numbers to 100 members of our community. 

We need to raise over £2000 yearly in order to fully fund the lunch.  We were sucsessful in achieving funds from Tesco Galston which will pay for 2019’s lunch but as a committee we need to plan ahead.

We are particularly interested in inviting residents in Darvel who are over 60 and have been recently bereaved, are a carer to a loved one, or are themselves struggling with their mental health. 

We can offer transport.  We can also warmly provide a space for a carer to attend the lunch.

Please contact the chair of the Dinner Ladies Christine Campbell on 7846933601 or christinecampbell.cc77@gmail.com.

The Dinner Ladies group was formed last year to take over from the Wednesday Brownies who had ran a sucsessful Christmas lunch in December 2017 with funding from our local co-op.  The Brownies asked me to continue and then the rest as they say is history.

Our community have really rallied behind us with love and support.  This year alone we have ran a community indoor car boot sale, a community ceilidh and assisted with a vibrant free – Big Lunch.  The group are made up of tireless volunteers who warmly welcome men to our commitee as well as ladies – dont let our group name put you off!

We are happy to assist groups in Darvel and will be helping our Gala Committee at the colour run on August 31st.

Please get in touch if you have someone who would enjoy our Christmas lunch 

We are fortunate to have Claire Brown on our committee (aka Nana Brown) the picture is Nana Brown rolling up her sleeves to help at our Big Lunch on Saturday.  Thank you to our community for supporting the event. 

Our next event is running the tea rooms at the Gala Day in Galston on the 8th of June.  

We also have a Big Scottish quiz planned for Saturday the 30th of November, where the winning team will win £100.

Kind regards 

Christine and the Dinner ladies
