Tiree Lunch Club receives Lottery Funds

The elderly and vulnerable members of the community were informed this week by the Big Lottery that funding was granted to the lunch club to supply a minibus and recruit a community outreach worker.

The lunch club has been running twice per week with the help of volunteers and now will be able to offer a much wider service of support to the community, hence the lunch club has become The Resource Club.

This is an opportunity to enhance the lives of people in the community who are otherwise restricted from taking part in community events. The minibus has seating for wheelchairs and will attend community meetings and events. The minibus will also be available to other community groups to access. Importantly the recruitment of an outreach worker will enable the Resource Club to develop activities, outings and offer a more structured support system for carers.
