Today we said goodbye to Frank Gallagher who is retiring after 17 years working with us.

Frank has worked with Robert since the start. Frank told us it has been a pleasure seeing Robert move into his own home, become more independent and even visit the home of his idol Elvis Presley in Memphis Tennessee.

Frank also commented that he really enjoyed working with various people who were part of Robert’s team over the years and with the organisation as a whole.

Massive thanks to Frank for his great work with Robert and C-Change. We all wish him the very best for the future šŸ™‚

Darran’s Walking Group

Published: October 19, 2018

 


 

Darran (one of the people we work for) has started a walking group in Falkirk supported by his team members Carrie, Louise and Rebecca.

They were joined yesterday for a walk in local woodland by Connal from Falkirk and his two team members Nikki and Nadine as well as Aiden from West Lothian and team member Susan.

The group had a fantastic time! Everyone said they really enjoyed the day.

Getting out on a good walk in nature is great for health and general wellbeing. A group walk is also a great way to socialise.

Another walk is planned for next week. More people have already shown an interest in joining since yesterday.

If interested in joining the group on future walks please contact our Falkirk Support Advisor Islean Stuart: islean.stuart@c-change.org.uk
