The evening was attended by more than 140 guests including representatives from Peter Vardy, Motherwell, who awarded 9 - young people with certificates for successfully undertaking work experience with the company.

The AGM business of the charity was covered early on and the rest of the evening was an inspirational showcase of COVEY’s work past and present. There were videos, presentations, drumming and songs, as well as heart warming contributions from the staff, volunteers and people who benefit from COVEY’s services.
