2021 - Christmas Issue

Message from the Chair & the Editor

Welcome to the Christmas edition of Kaleidoscope. As 2021 draws to a close, most of us will be reflecting on our setbacks and achievements this year. Lockdown was not easy for any of us, least of all for those who lost loved ones. It has been an era of tragedy, but also one where the community has shown innovation, adaptation, resilience and kindness, whether it was helping a neighbour, planning projects to help the community or learning a new skill - things we should be proud of.

Pam’s Christmas message for Kaleidoscope this year is particularly apt; we simply cannot afford to give up hope. Michelle Johnson, a successful author and wellbeing expert, is also on hand with advice on wellbeing over the festive season, while Graham reflects on the topical issue of climate change. Derek may fox you on a question or two in his Big Christmas quiz – a great way to test your knowledge and while away a quiet moment over Christmas!

As we move into the festive season, we would like to thank everyone for supporting SACCO in 2021, whether as members, by attending our various events, or working with/promoting our service. We’ll be raising our glasses to you this Christmas.
