The gathering was the latest in a series of initiatives which have bridged the generation gap and raised the profile of work done by the Black Isle Cares group.

Brian Devlin of Black Isle Cares said: “Once again Fortrose Academy have opened their doors to us as they hosted a lunch for older people in the community, many of whom receive Meals on Wheels from us. The scheme delivers on average around 80 meals per week now and is fast becoming an established part of Black Isle life. Recently students have signed up to go out on the Meals on Wheels round with our volunteers. The feedback has been so heart-warming. Everyone appears to have enjoyed it.”

Teacher Margaret Rhynas and pupils Emma MacKenzie and Grace MacLeod helped produce new posters and leaflets for BIC.
