Age Concern Eastwood celebrate 40 years of dedication

The group opened its first day centre in 1979

Age Concern 40th Anniversary

Age Concern Eastwood was recognised for its hard work and commitment to the local area with an Afternoon Tea at Carmichael Hall today (Friday 5 April).

For four decades, Age Concern Eastwood volunteers have worked hard to ensure that older people in Eastwood have the best quality of life possible.

In 1979, the organisation's first day centre and lunch club opened in Giffnock and has grown in numbers over the years, with regular social activities now provided for around 70 older people.

Age Concern Eastwood runs three social lunch clubs, and provides an invaluable information and advice centre, wheelchair loans and three minibuses for use by various local organisations.

The service is a lifeline for many people within the local community and helps tackle some of the issues linked to loneliness and social isolation.

I was delighted to host this civic reception to celebrate the fantastic work carried out by Age Concern Eastwood. I would like to commend all of the team for their hard work day in day out to help our residents across the area. Well done to you all, I look forward to seeing this amazing organisation continue to flourish in the coming years.Provost Jim Fletcher
