  1. This is part of what ‘The Orkney News’ does – puts up helpful contacts for people in difficulties over the holiday season.
    A true community venture.
    More power to your collective elbows!
    And, wishing a clearer, productive, positive year ahead to anyone in difficulties at the present time.
    Just keep going – stay alive – look to the positive possibilities of the time ahead – you never know how it might turn out!
    Sending all good thoughts to…all.
    Keep on keeping on.
