My role is to support the DSEN team, engage with current and new members to promote their business.
Kirsty Scott, DSEN’s Operations Manager, visited Link up Whitfield Community Service Complex, 101 Whitfield Drive, Dundee, (Inspiring Scotland project hosted by DSEN member, Volunteer Dundee) to meet Sandra Stewart, Community Development Worker for Volunteer Dundee as part of the TSI Outreach programme. Sandra is on hand to provide information and support activities and groups in the Whtifield area every Wednesday 12-2pm and met at the Link Up Lunch Club which provides fresh home made food as part of the Dundee Healthy Living Initiative.
Local residents help run the Lunch Club led by Joe Thomson, Lunch Club Development Officer every Wednesday from 12pm – 1.30pm and it is proving very popular! They are looking for volunteers to help with their new community allotment project where they will be a gardening venture growing vegetables that they can use in the kitchen. If you don’t have green fingers there are other activities going on Monday to Friday that include Camera Club, Baking Group, Dance Group, Arts & Craft and a Cinema Club. They are looking for people to participate in these to get together and meet new people. If you live in the area, pop over and see whats on and if you have a group idea of your own, get in touch with Sandra – firstname.lastname@example.org
