HomeStart East Lothian were runners up in Asda Dunbar's January/February Chosen by You, Given by Us voting. They were very excited to tell me about an allotment space they had adopted and their plan to create an exciting yet relaxing space for everyone to use. HomeStart East Lothian hope that the fruit and vegetables produced will be shared amongst their service users and used in future Homestart cooking groups. Work is well underway with help from families using the service and the community service team.
My absolute favourite part of my job is heading out and seeing the amazing work that local groups do within the community. It was with great pleasure that I was able to visit East Lothian Special Needs Playscheme and present the children and young adults who benefit from the service with a cheque for £200 as Asda Dunbar's Chosen by You winning nomination. The Playscheme is an amazing asset to the community!

I had the great pleasure to present the volunteers at Dunbar Basics Bank with a cheque for £200 as the winning nominees for the Asda Dunbar's November/December Chosen by You voting. Working closely with the Basics Bank has given me opportunity to personally witness the amazing work they do within the community, providing such a welcoming environment that many clients return as friends popping in for friendly chat and delicious soup and homebaking.
