Friday night fun for Forward Vision

Friday night fun for Forward Vision

Forward Vision residents, care staff and their families came together for a winter Ceilidh recently. 

Smiles spread across residents’ faces as the band played and those in wheelchairs whirled across the Prestonfield Golf Club floor. 

Attendees enjoyed a hearty of spread of savouries, sandwiches and haggis bon bons.

Supported by Royal Blind care staff and families, the dancing continued until 9.30pm, when weary heads retired for the night.

Thanks to all who helped organise and those who supported this wonderful night out!
