A passion to help

It is enough to lighten up a cold November wintry day. Young folk in Bo’ness responded to a call from St Andrew’s  Church to come and help out old folk and people who are stranded in their houses unable to get out because of the weather conditions.

Lilias Snedden, youth worker at St Andrew’s and Bo’ness community councillor, sent a few text messages and was inundated by the response and offers of help. Twenty young folk are doing a spot of grocery shopping, digging cars out and clearing pathways in Bo’ness. This is what true community spirit is all about. This is precisely the type of Scotland that we should all be striving to achieve. Well done Bo’ness; I would love to hear  more stories of young people with a passion to help and of people being just plain good caring neighbours.
