Thistle's 75th!

On Friday 7th June, Thistle celebrated our 75th anniversary, and we're so glad so many of you were there to celebrate with us.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along and helped us to celebrate 75 years of Thistle!

Thistle has been based here in Craigmillar, supporting disabled people and people living with long term health conditions to live well, since we were founded by the Tudsberys in 1944. We were delighted to see people supported by Thistle, local residents, partner organisations, Thistle employees and volunteers and our local councillors all coming together to share in the celebrations. Over the course of the day over 750 people came along to join in the fun.

The dust has settled on what was a wonderful afternoon and we’d love to share some of the photos from the day with you!
