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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 01592 630253. ick here to edit.

Get Wrapped Up! for Crossroads Fife Central and attend our festive shopping night – 3rd November 6.30 – 9.30 pm
Crossroads Fife Central is a registered charity operating across Central and North East Fife. We provide personalised respite support to carers caring for people of all ages who have a disability or illness.
We employ experienced, skilled and trained staff to look after the cared for person, either in their own home or by taking them out, according to their individual needs and choices. This gives the carer a much needed break.
We help more than 200 carers every year and provide over 20,000 hours of support.
In these austere times, fundraising has been crucial in enabling us to continue to support Carers and provide hours of respite. As such, Support Worker Maggie Macdonald has organised an exciting shopping event at The Kingswood Hotel near Burntisland on Friday, 3rd November, giving people the opportunity to start their Christmas shopping, whilst boosting the funds of Crossroads.
People in Fife are encouraged to snap up tickets for Get Wrapped Up!, which will feature a range of bearing artisan and handmade gifts which will be available to buy on the night.
Doors open at 6.30 p.m. with the first 50 shoppers receiving a free goodie bag. Tickets priced £6 each or two for £10, which include a complimentary drink on arrival, can be bought by calling Crossroads on 01592 610540, The Kingswood Hotel on 01592 872329 or by emailing Maggie Macdonald at Maggie.firstname.lastname@example.org Proceeds from tickets will help to provide respite hours for Carers.
Doors close at 9.30 p.m.
