A great big thank you to Bannerman Decorators who have made a generous donation of paint, rollers, brushes, etc to help with our ‘Love the Lade’ project. It is hugely appreciated!
‘Love the Lade’ is having its first Community Action Day on Tuesday 24th May at 1:00pm and we would love you to get involved!!!
We at ‘Giraffe Social Enterprises’ are coordinating an exciting Community Project to restore our Lade canal back to its former glory.
Our aim is to conserve the Lade by improving its biodiversity and at the same time making it a relaxing and pleasant place for the community to use daily as a place to walk, cycle, jog or feed the ducks.
If you could spare some time to help us plant wildlife friendly plants, remove graffiti, litter pick, conduct wildlife surveys, clean up the Lade or help with our community art project we would love hear from you.
Our first Community Action Day will take place on Tuesday 24th May from 1:00pm at our Giraffe Ladeside Plant Centre, St Catherines Road, Ladeside, PH1 5RY.
Coffee, Tea and biscuits will be supplied!!!

We’d like to thank everyone who came along to our golf competition last Sunday, raising over £500 for our cause!
The sun was shining and the course, donated to us for the day by Glenalmond College was looking fantastic. In the end there were only 3 points separating the top 3 teams which is a fantastic result.
One of our amazing volunteers is riding 1000 miles on her bicycle to raise money for the Perth Cathedral Restoration Fund.
Jennifer Irving will be starting the fantastic journey on May 1st and is looking for as many donations as possible towards her cause. Please get behind her, hope for the wind to be at her back and throw some money into the pot!
