Donation to 'Good Morning Service'
DC Tom McInally and Ex Deacon Jan Dobson presented the Good Morning Service (one of the DC's charities this year) with a cheque for £5,000 last week.
Based in Springburn, it provides telephone befriending and alert calls to older people. Every morning, 365 days a year, Telephone Befrienders call out to members at a pre-arranged time to check that all is well and for a 'good blether'.
The charity has been called 'guardian angels' by those that access it.
Albert (68) said; "At the time I didn't want to live any more. I felt "if this is life I don't want it", and my GP put me onto Good Morning...I've found talking is the best therapy."
