National Volunteers' Week

Janet McGinty of Ageing Well

Did you know that pre Covid-19 about 30% of Midlothian residents volunteered in some way? During National Volunteers’ Week we are celebrating thousands of volunteers of all ages who help day in, day out. One such volunteer is Janet McGinty, who has been volunteering with Ageing Well for nine years. Ageing Well co-ordinator Vivian Wallace said: “Janet is very caring and dedicated. She has been calling her Penicuik new age kurling group of 25-30 people every week ensuring they are all coping well and enjoying a little chat. If she has any concerns, she gets back to me.”
