A special coffee morning event to raise funds for Glenlaw House Parents and Carers Group has been held by Shona Robison MSP and the Brooksbank Centre.
The event was held on Friday 26th October and offered members of the public a chance to enjoy tea, cakes, coffee and even bacon rolls – as well as running a fundraising tombola.
The Glenlaw House Parents and Carers Group offers support for children with complex disabilities. Two videos highlighting the work of the Parents and Carers Group were shown at the event.
Along with Shona Robison, many other local politicians turned out in support of the event, including Dundee City Council Leader John Alexander and Lord Provost Ian Borthwick, as well as Joe FitzPatrick MSP, Chris Law MP, Stewart Hosie MP, Councillor Christina Roberts and Councillor Anne Rendall.
Commenting, Shona Robison MSP said:
"It was a pleasure to host this year's coffee morning in support of Glenlaw House Parents and Carers Group. The work that Allan Petrie and all others parents and carers have done to raise awareness of this vital service is fantastic, and they are a credit to themselves, their families and our entire community.
"Thank you to everyone who joined us at Brooksbank Centre this morning and to those who couldn't be there but donated towards this event. You all helped us make today a huge success."
Allan Petrie, Chairman for the Parents and Carers Group, added:
"The parents and carers of Glenlaw House would like to thank Shona Robison MSP, her staff, the Brooksbank Centre and everyone who came and supported us on Friday.
“The money raised will be put to good use to ensure our children can enjoy their time at Glenlaw House even more. It was great to see so many people in attendance helping to promote the great work the staff at Glenlaw do for our children and us as carers.
“It is important that Glenlaw is given the prominence within our community it deserves."
