Charlie House Sets Sights on Peterhead After Successful ‘Out and About’ Sessions in Inverurie and Elgin

Charlie House staff are 'Out and About' in Peterhead

CHARLIE House, a leading charity organisation dedicated to supporting children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions, has wrapped up its successful ‘Out and About’ drop-in sessions in Inverurie and Elgin, and are thrilled to announce the next leg of its ‘Out and About’ information sessions taking place in Peterhead.

The previous sessions proved to be an exceptional opportunity for these communities to engage with the Charlie House team in an inviting and relaxed setting. These sessions enabled visitors to discover more about the support and services the charity offers, explore accessible activities, learn about volunteering opportunities, and explore ways to contribute to fundraising initiatives.

Leigh Ryrie, Children and Family Support Manager at Charlie House, expressed her excitement about the success of the first events, saying: “The Charlie House team is thrilled by the warm reception we received in Inverurie and Elgin. We had the privilege of connecting with various individuals and families. Access to information is often the first step in families getting the support they need.”
