Lyla Munro, Fresh Retail Manager at Annan House attended the Afternoon Tea in the Winter Gardens, to celebrate the honour of Aberdeen Cyrenians receiving the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services.

Over the past 4 years Lyla has been a volunteer at Aberdeen Cyrenians serving food, doing activities such as gardening and yoga with the people who attend, and taking time to speak to them. Lyla also helps one night a week at Wernham House, which is a safe house that has around 13 residents where she holds quizzes and horse racing nights.

During lockdown, Lyla went in and made-up food parcels for the homeless to collect and sorted through donations for the new warehouse which moved from Summer Street to Strawberry Bank.

Well done to Lyla and all the volunteers for their continual support, kindness and care they have shown, without their support this couldn’t have been achieved.
