Volunteering for Poppyscotland
In 2015 I decided to show my support and make a small difference to a great Cause by volunteering myself to Charity Orginsations and helping them raise donations.
I’m a volunteer for poppyscotland since 2015 and Ive enjoy the experience going out around Edinburgh supporting a great cause (Armed Forces Community) its been amazing and fun. Handing out poppies and collecting donations.
feel like your doing something incredible and making a difference. Always im looking forward to Poppy Appeal every year.
In 2017 i was collecting at Waverly Station in Edinburgh for the Scottish Poppy Appeal also collecting and handing out poppies at 2 more locations in Edinburgh like St Andrews Square and Sainburys at St Andrews Square.
I visited Lochleven Castle on the 21st April 2018 for the first time, i didnt think this place existed as this small Island is very small in the Kingross area of Scotland.
To get over to the castle, you have to get a boat over which only can take 12 people at a time and they run every 45 minutes to drop off and collect people back.
14 century tower and castle ruins with links to Mary Queen of Scotland imprisoned in 1567.
Looking around was amazing this small Island on a beautiful sunny day learning more about the place.
Lochleven Castle runs between April to September and opens at 10am. Best advice is to come and visit on a nice day day which you will enjoy yourself even better.
Once the boat collect you and takes you back to where you started, there is amazing cafe where you can get something to eat and drink.
Well recommended to visit with the family or just with friends its a nice little day out to enjoy yourself
Its been 2 years since I’ve had wearing my fitbit and i must say its very Now I’ve got the Flex 2 fitbit, only thing it’s different is there no time display or heart rate.
apart from that it does every thing it else.
For me I’m happy with because I’m sight loss so not having aaaaaathe time display is okimressive because there so many fetures and there so many different fitbit out there to suit your needs
One thing I’ve doing to keep active, is going to Edinburgh Leisure and doing some glasses or some workouts at the Gym. Recently this year I fell unwell and discovered I have a problem with my heart. Need to cut down and do things a bit easier.
I visited the Lady Poppy Factory Tour in Edinburgh, i was very impressed getting shown around by Greame 18th July 2015
Learning more about the Poppy Factory and they way they do things, just shows you the staff really do put a a lot of work in to it and making thousand of Poppys
It was a great experience and enjoyed every moment of it and everyone at Poppyscotland HQ is very friendly and helpful.
Itself all in a great cause by supporting the Armed Forces Community
