Looking After People With Individual Needs in Galashiels (LAPWING) is a weekly Lunch Club, characterised by food, fun and friendship. There is a willing group of helpers from the fellowship who buy, cook, shift tables, wash-up and drive etc. There is always a warm, supportive and generous atmosphere.
It is an open Club, available to our church fellowship, church neighbours and referrals from the Social Work Department.
Lapwing Lunch Club Service – On the first Tuesday of the month, there is a short Christian service at 11.45 (with tea/coffee from 11.30).
As even weekly social events become important in the lives of our elderly, frail and socially isolated people.
We are self-fund-raising, non-profit making and never keep much money in the bank, preferring to use it on equipment and outings.
