That the Parliament welcomes the national recognition given to the partnership between Our Community Kitchen and Haddington Bowling Club for the work that they have undertaken to help tackle social isolation and support people in the town during the COVID-19 pandemic; notes that Bowls Scotland and sportscotland have highlighted the success of the partnership approach adopted by the two organisations, which resulted in 300 hot meals a week being delivered to residents’ homes during lockdown; congratulates the volunteers involved in both for everything that they have achieved together over the last two years and especially for their role during lockdown, and wishes them continued success with their collaboration.
