"My name is Agnes and I have been supported by Cornerstone for eighteen years and have been supported by Cornerstone Connects Stonehaven (CCS) for seven of those.

"I have been really happy about receiving support from Cornerstone especially during Covid-19, as without it I would feel so lonely.

“One of my favourite things about the group is that I have made lots of good friends by going to the weekly disco and karaoke nights, which is one of the things I have missed the most during the lockdown.

"Since the social hub and shop has reopened, I’ve been busy knitting cotton face and dish clothes that I sell in the shop.  I also knit hats and scarves for the Cosy Bosie project which helps to spread some warmth in the communities this winter.

“I just can’t wait to go on holiday again, I have really missed it and having fun in the sun”
