At the end of September, an amazing team of our staff and volunteers held an Afternoon Tea in Bellsquarry Village Hall to raise money for CoWL. It was a lovely afternoon enjoyed by 50 attendees.

The tables heaved with plates and cake stands filled with delicious goodies—it was hard to save anything for the guests! We accompanied the food with a game of Afternoon Tea bingo which got all our attendees into the spirit. The tombola and raffle also were successful, and we hope all our prize winners are enjoying their goodies!

Our Patron, June Andrews also joined our afternoon, delivering an insightful talk about Carers of West Lothian and all the work we do.

The afternoon tea raised a grand total of £1569.58, all of which will go to benefitting our service users! Thank you all for supporting us.

We’d also like to extend a huge thank you to our team of volunteers, from planning to helping out on the day, we couldn’t have done it without you! We were also joined by 3 amazing volunteers from Sky, whose help was truly invaluable.

The day couldn’t have happened without all the businesses who helped us too! So we’d like to wish another massive thanks to these wonderful businesses:
