HELENSBURGH’S award-winning community mental health and wellbeing hub is throwing open its doors to the community for two days at the end of this week.

Jean’s Bothy, on the corner of East King Street and South King Street, will be open to the public on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, giving Helensburgh residents a chance to find out more about the work the hub does.

Between 11am and 3pm on both days there will be games, face painting, stalls selling items produced by two of the hub’s interest groups - one in knitting and crochet, the other in photography.

There will also be afternoon teas on Friday and a barbecue on Saturday – and on top of that there will be a raffle with some great prizes to be won, including items donated by The Journey, Humbles, the Card Factory, Callaghan’s butchers, Riva and Morrisons.

The hub, opened in October 2018, is run by ENABLE Scotland and the Argyll and Bute health and social care partnership with input from the local voluntary sector, the armed services community and the emergency services.

It won the ‘community project of the year’ prize at the Scotland’s Champions awards in September 2021.
