On Tuesday 18th September the speaker at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Men’s Group will be Joyce Bell from Alva.

Joyce is a nurse at Strathcarron Hospice and, over the years, she and her colleague Caroline have visited South Africa to work with a number of local groups on a variety of health issues, especially HIV and AIDS.
