Befriending Week 2019

on 15-Nov-2019 

LINK's Adolescent Project was invited to talk at a Holyrood Reception as part of Befriending Week 2019 celebrations.  The volunteer and young person shared their story in a very powerful and emotive way. To rapturous applause, and a few tears - including mine!  The event was sponsored by MSP Monica Lennon (herself an exbefriender), with closing remarks delivered by Christina McKelvie MSP.  It was an unforgettable event and a privilege to be part of.
