Provost visit to The Haven
We were incredibly privileged to have a recent visit from South Lanarkshire Provost Ian McAllan.
The Provost who plays a very important ambassadorial role on behalf of the council, representing South Lanarkshire at many civic occasions and works closely with community and voluntary sector groups, was warmly welcomed to The Haven, where he enjoyed a tour of both the Blantyre and the Forth centres and had the opportunity to learn about the expansive free programme of support and services available to those affected by life limiting illness in the local community.
Provost McAllan has kindly supported The Haven in the past by attending events like The Haven Burns Supper, however he expressed that seeing first-hand The Haven centres and learning truly from staff, clients and volunteers what The Haven means, was an inspiring experience.
Provost McAllan said: “It was incredibly humbling and moving to visit the Haven and to see first-hand the wonderful work they do.
“The support they offer people and their families, who may be going through the most painful and traumatic time of their lives, is absolutely incredible.
“I would encourage anyone who may benefit from their services to get in touch with them.”
Thank you to the Provost for making time to visit The Haven. It was a pleasure to share with Provost McAllan a true representation of The Haven’s work.
We are always delighted to have visitors to our centres and this was such a positive experience and opportunity to create awareness of our charities services, what it means in the community and hopefully encourage more individuals and families to take up the support available.
