Broomlands and Bourtreehill Age Concern supports older people around Irvine and North Ayrshire; providing a lunch club five days a week, recreational activities, and meals on wheels to anyone unable to get to the centre.
A recent legacy grant from Age Scotland helped them to buy a new minibus, enabling them to continue a daily pick up/drop off service for older people to attent the centre for lunch and afternoon activities. The minibus also takes older people to their twice weekly bingo night and enables the group to arrange special outings.
The service provides for older residents living in and around Irvine.

Transport plays a massive role in helping people in later life, and those with disabilities, to lead more meaningful and connected lives. We're proud to have been able to contribute towards the group’s new minibus.
- Heather Baillie, Local Development Officer
Without the grant from Age Scotland our new mini-bus wouldn’t have been possible, and I can’t thank Age Scotland and Heather Baillie enough for all her hard work in helping us raise the funds.
