Muaitheabhal Community Windfarm Trust and local councillors, through their ward funds, have enabled Care Homes to re-introduce visiting through the purchase of equipment which is making socially distanced outdoor visiting possible.

Head of Community Care Jack Libby expressed his thanks. "Friday was a very special day for care home residents and their loved ones, made all the more special by the enhanced visiting facilities available through this funding which went towards the purchase of garden furniture, gazebos and awnings."

Chairperson of the Muaitheabhal Community Windfarm Trust Iain MacIver said: “The Muaitheabhal Trustees are united in our desire to offer help to better the lives of those who find themselves in care during such challenging and worrying times.

"By offering help from the fund we hope that, in however small a way, the money can be used to safely add to the quality of comfort and care for residents. We hope that is to their benefit and also for those on whose care they rely.”
