TIME TO SAY THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS!
Crossroads Fife celebrates and thanks our Volunteer Befrienders for their kindness, time and dedication in helping the people who need us most. Thank you to our volunteers for going the extra mile supporting vulnerable people during the lockdown by phone or shop-drops. During Volunteers’ Week from 1-7 June, we want to honour the power of volunteering and their incredible impact. The coronavirus pandemic has raised the profile of volunteering and the immense contribution being made every single day by volunteers.
Crossroads Fife is a local Scottish charity who is proud to have provided quality care and dependable support to people in Fife for over 25 years. Our Befriending service provided by Volunteers complements the Respite, Palliative and Purchased Services delivered by Support Staff. All of our services enable carers and vulnerable adults to have a break by relying on our highly trained staff and volunteers.
Our valuable volunteers make an enormous contribution to individual’s lives, families and communities throughout Scotland. With over 1.2 million people involved in formal volunteering, they contribute more than £2 billion to the Scottish economy every year. Volunteer Nancy, said ‘I’ve been volunteering with Crossroads for a couple of years and befriending has become such an important and wonderful part of my life which my befriendee and I both treasure’.
Crossroads Fife Chair, Murray Grubb said ‘The pandemic has changed the landscape so taking the time to thank our volunteers for their critical contribution and connection to the most vulnerable in our society is essential. We celebrate our volunteers and look forward to their full return.’
So, if you’re up to volunteering and helping someone feel more connected and less socially isolated and lonely, we’d love to hear from you: email@example.com, 01592 630253. ick here to edit.

Fiona Smith was recently invited by the members of Pittenweem Arts Festival to receive a cheque for £1121. This money was raised by selling beautiful handmade crafts following the theme of 'Christmas in Summer'. Fiona is pictured here with Chairperson Anne-Marijke Querido and a representative from the Maggie's Centre, who also received £1121.
Crossroads Fife Central was very grateful to receive this cheque and very appreciative for all the hard work that went into raising the money. Again, thank you to the members of the Pittenweem Arts Festival for considering us in your efforts. The money will be used to provide respite and support to Carers and people with illness and disability in the Fife area.
Fiona greatly enjoyed her visit and meeting some of the members, pictured below.
Following our fun filled sponsored walk around the Beveridge Park on 2nd July 2016, all monies have now been collected. We are delighted to announce funds raised from the event total £2,228.72! Part of this total included £328 we received from Diageo, who matched monies raised by their staff who did the walk. These funds will be used to provide additional hours to carers and people requiring support.
Crossroads Fife Central wants to give a huge thanks to all those who walked with us on the day and to all those who sponsored someone or made a donation. Our thanks also go to Diageo.
