Myra’s 40 years with Ark

Date Posted: 20/09/2023


Myra has achieved a significant milestone this year. On 12th September 1983 Myra became an Ark tenant and moved into one of our properties in Blairgowrie so this year marks her 40 years with us!

She decided to throw a big party and invited family, friends and staff that used to work with Ark at the very beginning of the project in Blairgowrie.

The Town Hall was full as over 70 people came to celebrate Myra. With music provided by local accordion player Johnny Duncan and a tasty buffet, it was a great success!

Myra asked for donations to the Cancer Research UK charity instead of presents and she raised £455.

Myra likes her neighbours and says that it is like a big happy family.  On sunny days everyone sits outside together in the garden and chats.

We are honoured to have provided housing and care to Myra for all these years and to have witnessed her achievements and dreams. 

To many more years together Myra!
