Tuesday 26th January saw Kirkhill Church hold a Ladies’ Evening in aid of the Elsie Normington Foundation.
This was a fun evening with a Valentine shopping theme. We had seven vendors: The Corner on the Square, Beauly; Far and Away Travel; The Men Shed; The Potters House, Kiltarlity; Georgia May; The Drawing Room; Caton Creations; plus an information stall about the Elsie Normington Foundation project.
The Elsie Normington Foundation plans to build a specialist play centre, respite wing, community coffee shop and some supported housing for children and young adults with learning disabilities in Inverness. We need your help to raise £4 million for this project. Young people need relevant facilities and services while parents need to be supported appropriately in their caring role. There are 1,679 children with additional needs in school and 722 children who are registered disabled in Highland.
Over 120 women from Kirkhill, Kiltarlity and the surrounding area gathered to buy gifts for loved ones, chat and connect with friends old and new. We raised over £1,000 for the Elsie Normington Foundation.
