Welcome to the Summer 2017 edition of the St Andrew’s Children’s Society newsletter, Reflections16.
In this edition we say a sad farewell to four members of staff, but hello to Milo and Mo, two puppet mice who will be assisting Rita!
We introduce you to our new website to be launched in May.
We welcome Pascaline Mollard to John’s Place and Scotland’s Adoption Register.
Did you know, this is the 95th anniversary of the formation of The Archdiocesan Social Services Committee, the forerunner of St Andrew’s Children’s Society. We are saving our celebrations
for our 100th birthday in 2022 – lookout for the special edition of Reflections24! But to mark the occasion, Denise Burgess gives us a glimpse of her 30 years with the Society.
In the the November 2016 edition of the St Andrew’s Adoption & Foster Care newsletter we say a fond farewell to Constance Bartley, retiring after 30 years with St Andrew’s.
You may well ask what a photo of a cruise liner is doing on the front of this newsletter. It came from Aberdeen Velga, who cruised on the Reflection earlier this year. The picture of the fireworks comes from the Aberdeen ‘Dads ‘N’ Lads’ group. The gathering of people are SafeBase™ parents who attended our Call-Back session – more inside.
The article regarding Trustees in the last edition of Reflections brought some good responses. Potential Trustees and Volunteers, read more.
Top tips seem to go down well, so there’s a seasonal one to help at Christmas Day Dinner.
We pay tribute to Alex Wilson, one of our long term foster carers, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
And to finish with, good news on the fundraising front.
