Thanks to our community for a great Christmas party!

Christmas Party

FDAMH Mental Health & Wellbeing Drop-In had their annual Christmas party on Friday 21st of December. For many of our service users, this may be their only opportunity to come together during the Festive period.

We were overwhelmed at the kind and generous donations from Falkirk supermarkets, retailers and organisations, as well as individuals, that helped make this party special. They have helped us provide a great party for over 35 adults and we have a little left over to help make Christmas Eve at FDAMH cheerful and welcoming too!

We would like to thank:
Jock and Yvonne at Denny Co-op, Kevin and Nicolle at Grangemouth Asda, Jamie at Sainsbury’s in Denny, Costa Coffee in the Central Retail park, Maley’s Chocolates, Laura in Boots at the Retail Park, and Debenhams Falkirk for their kind donations. Without their support we couldn’t have put on such a great afternoon!

Thanks also to everyone who has handed in gifts of treats for staff and volunteers alike. It is very much appreciated.
