Lift for Poppy Appeal08/11/16
THE YOUNG workforce at a Dundee café is determined to look forward as well as back with a charity fund-raiser later this week.
People taking part in an employability programme at The Shore want to raise awareness of the lift installed at the building as well as money for the Scottish Poppy Appeal.
John Alexander the council’s children and young person’s champion will back their efforts by attending the fund-raising coffee morning on Friday (November 11).
He said: “With the 100th anniversary of the Great War being commemorated until 2018 the loss of life and sacrifices made by that generation are at the front of all our minds.
“Many of the people who paid the ultimate price for serving their country were the same age as this group at The Shore and for them to want to raise many for the Scottish Poppy Appeal is a credit to them.
“At the same time to let people know that the lift in The Shore is working and increasing accessibility for potential customers is a great idea.”
The community café offers work training and experience to young people from across the city and will host the poppy coffee morning on Friday (November 11) between 10am and 12 noon.
