Well done Danny!

It was with great pleasure that our Development Worker travelled to Leverburgh on the last day of our Volunteers' Week celebrations to meet with the CHSS Western Isles Branch to present our Clisham Award which is for Outstanding Volunteering Contribution.

The recipient of the special award was the well deserved Mr Danny Mackay

Sonja Macleod, CHSS Manager states, " We are delighted that Danny has been presented with this award as it highlights his great support to the charity and all of the people he has been matched with. He has a genuine empathy and understanding of stroke and how it can affect your life and day to day living. He is a regular volunteer at the Monday Stroke Club where he has recently been elected as chairman and continues to provide peer support to people out in the community. CHSS are so grateful for his invaluable years of support and experience. Thank you Danny
