ARBROATH Town Mission recently recognised the efforts of its volunteers with a fun afternoon.

The group enjoyed a selection of competitive games and afternoon tea at the centre, organised by Wilma Swankie and Valerie Walker.

The winners with the highest scores were Elizabeth Woods, Violet Matthewson and Helen Stewart.

Wilma thanked the company for their input over the year. She said: “Without you it would be very difficult to maintain the full programme of services and activities appreciated and valued by all who attend.

“In this year of the Olympic Games, if there was an event for volunteering, the company before me would not be awarded bronze or silver, but the gold medal.”

Each volunteer was then presented with a Cadbury’s chocolate gold medal and Bob Clapham added his thanks. The vote of thanks was given by Sadie Brown.
