Lighthouse talk for Stonehaven Ladies Probus Club

The second meeting of the Stonehaven Ladies Probus began at the Station Hotel on Tuesday, October 7.

President, Francis Gilroy, warmly welcomed everyone to the meeting and introduced guest speaker John Merson of the Lighthouse Centre.

John gave an enlightening and extremely interesting talk about the Lighthouse Support Centre at Tillydrone.

The centre is a community outreach project situated in the Tillydrone Shopping Centre.

The project itself offers one to one and group support to socially excluded and disadvantaged people in the surrounding district. The Lighthouse community aims to help with self-esteem and worth and is involved in an amazing amount of community work.

The success of this project is dependent on a team of committed volunteers who are the backbone of the Lighthouse Support Centre and help to make it so successful.

The Lighthouse Centre have just celebrated their 10th Anniversary and have received the Queens Award for their work.

Clare Clouston proposed the vote of thanks.
