Volunteers strike with a difference
LEAP’s handyperson volunteers put their back into a bit of R&R
LEAP’s handypersons team took advantage of a quiet spell in their work calendar to take part in the charity’s inaugural ten pin bowling event with members of staff.
The group took to the lanes of M&D’s Cosmic Bowl in a fun-filled challenge, with the volunteers easily beating the staff - Bruce Robertson winning and Rob King runner-up.
Kevin Key, LEAP’s volunteer co-ordinator, had organised the event as a thank you for the thousands of hours of time the volunteers give every year.
Kevin said: “January tends to be a bit slower in terms of handypersons work so it was a good time to take the team out for a wee thank you and a meal thanks to the support of the teams at M&D’s and the local Toby Carvery
“The staff joined in the fun as well, and it was good to see people putting faces to names. A wee bit of competition didn’t go amiss either!”
