Laurandy Day Care Centre held a fund-raiser day at Tesco , Wick and raised £526.29 at Tesco on Saturday 20th January 2018.

Chairman of Laurandy Day Care Centre, Bill Fernie said,"We thank the public once again for their generosity. The money goes to help run the centre where we care for mainly very elderly people. A high number of our clients unfortunately have dementia or Alzheimers."

"The centre provides a high level of care during the day helping hard pressed families and individuals. We pick people up with our own mini-bus and take them home again. We provide lunch and snacks."

A large part of our funding comes from NHS Highland but we still have to raise money from trusts and other sources. The public and local businesses are very helpful to Laurandy.

We have a dedicated staff and recently also took on the people who used to attend the Alzheimers group when that was closed down."

If anyone would like to donate or collect on behalf of Lauandy please contact Margaret Allen at the centre.
