Claire Wilson, Acting Care & Support Manager Claire shared, “DGMHA was founded in 1988 by a group of individuals and their families living with mental health challenges. Over the years, they’ve expanded their support to around 160 individuals with complex mental health needs, covering areas like Dumfries, Stranraer, Castle Douglas, and soon, Newton Stewart.”
“This year, their focus has been on fulfilling the individual wishes of their service users, helping them engage in community activities and outings. They’ve listened to their service users’ ideas and recently organized a fantastic trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park, which was thoroughly enjoyed.”
Lisa Todd, CEO Lisa Todd highlighted what attendees can expect: “Each ticket includes a welcome drink, a two-course meal, and five raffle tickets. They’ll also be honoring deserving staff members with awards and hosting a raffle and auction, featuring fantastic prizes like football memorabilia and signed jerseys.”
“They also operate a charity shop in Castle Douglas and are in need of more volunteers. Your support can make a real difference.”
