Our History

Logo for Our History

Mearns Kirk Helping Hands evolved from the good work being carried out by volunteers from Mearns Kirk for over 20 years.  In 2016 it was decided that Mearns Kirk Helping Hands be established as a registered charity, to develop and grow these three established volunteer led groups (The Friendship Club, The Lunch Club for People Living with Dementia and the Eastwood Bereavement Group).

The three original groups continue to develop and thrive.  Over the last two years we have begun to expand the range of services and groups we offer to include activities to help promote health and well being, bringing people together and encouraging the use of technology as a way of connecting with others and with useful services and information.
