Three Things for Thursday – 12th November 2020

Hi Folks – hopefully, you’re all feeling a little more hopeful this week with the news from across the pond, the positive vaccine announcment and of course, Christmas being only 43 days away – sorry, I couldn’t resist throwing that in there!

1/ SE Restart & Rebuild – apologies for harping on but, next week is all about promoting the fab work of social enterprises across Scotland and hopefully is inspiring too – huge number of events (programme here) with the finale entitled Climate Change and Social Enterprise – 20th November, 2 – 3.15 – more information and booking here.

2/ TSI Manifesto for Change – the TSI Network of which our very own VSGWL is a member with WLSEN delivering the support for social enterprise function, recently published a Manifesto for Change, outlining the third sector’s role in supporting the recovery from the impact of the Covid pandemic on communities across the country.

3/ Member News – glad to hear Broxburn United Sports Club will be able to continue their hugely successful Alive & Kickin programme for older people after receiving £29k from The Bank of Scotland Foundation.

Also great to hear the West Lothian Food Bank are back with their Reverse Advent Calendar Initiative – we’re already on day 12 but still time to get involved!
