The Rotary Clubs of Perth Kinnoull and St John’s have donated £2,000 towards the cost of providing 500 christmas gift bags to carers of all ages living in Perth & Kinross. This will be around 300 to young and young adults with the remaining 200 to adult carers. Each gift bag has about £20 worth of quality goods in them as the team at PKAVS (Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service) thought that this would be a nice touch. As much as they would have liked it was deemed financially impossible to deliver to all 2000 registered carers. As a result staff identified carers who have had a particularly tough time this year so as to prioritise them.
Raymond Jamieson PKVAS Carers Hub Manager and staff welcomed Rotarians to their North Muirton premises and thanked the Clubs for their generous donations which will add much needed festive pleasure to the recipients
