A huge well done to Donald Mackee, Lewis Retirement Centre. He was presented with a Certificate of Excellence from Age Scotland in recognition of his volunteering input to combat loneliness and isolation with older people.
The Lewis Retirement Centre provides a facility for older people to meet in a warm and safe environment also enabling them to mix with their peers by making use of the various activities that are on offer. Donald heads a bank of volunteers who prepare and... provide a delicious three course meal on a Thursday with the focus on high quality nutrition and beautiful presentation as well as making the most delicious shortbread. Donald has also through successful funding had the place freshly painted (although storm damage has left him with another big task) had new windows installed and recently had Wi-Fi installed allowing for the highly successful Tea and Technology afternoons to take place
Donald sees the ability in everyone, more often before they see it themselves and is always up for new challenges. Keep up the great work Donald!!
