WorkFlo Solutions

Workflo Solutions have stated they will generously donate £1,000 a month, for 12 months to help provide much needed counselling sessions to young people in West Lothian.

Michael Field, Managing Director of Workflo Solutions said
“Life has taught me that sometimes we all need a helping hand, and it’s in my nature to help others as I am fortunate enough to be in a position to do so. I met Declan Harrigan the founder of S.M.I.L.E last week and was blown away by the work him and his team do for the young people of West Lothian, so I’m delighted to have donated £12,000 as I know this will mean S.M.I.L.E can accept new referrals and help even more youngsters.”
