Earlier today, I was delighted to open a community lunch in Tullideph Place, organised by the staff from Gowrie Care’s Tullideph project and the people they support. Taking place as part of Big Lunch 2014, the proceeds raised have been donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
It was great to see so many people in the local area take part – a great example of the Tullideph community coming together and also highlighting the great work Gowrie Care does.
Irene Duff, Gowrie Care’s Tullideph project manager, said, “We decided to host the Big Lunch to meet our neighbours and to get the people we work with involved in the local community
“Gowrie Care support people in Dundee who require help with daily living skills and to access local resources. It was great to see the people who benefit from our service raising community spirit and helping to organise this event.
“Not only did we provide our lunch guests with a tasty meal but we also had a DJ, a raffle, face painting, a cake and bake stall and we even offered our dining companions the opportunity to wax some of our male staff - all in the name of charity of course!”
Here’s some photographs and a short video from today’s Big Lunch:
