Sound like a valuable service to the local community. When loneliness amongst the older generation is rife, these are the kinds of projects there should be more of.

Best of luck in reaching your funding goal. I seen this on the STV news last night my heart goes out to all the folk who enjoy using this facility.

I saw the video on STV tonight and thought...... what a shame if this great service was to close. Could there be a petition on 'change.org' or similar to help. I sincerely hope that you do not close through lack of funding. Best wishes

As a keen knitter myself, I feel that anything which can support older people to make friends whilst persuing personal interest should be supported. It’s all to easy when you work full time to forget that one day we will,not have the support of colleagues and may become lonely if we don’t have a lot of personal contact with others. The craft cafe is a lovely idea, bringing people who may not otherwise meet, together.
