Sheila’s Open Door is a weekly social group organised to cater for disabled adults and their carers, founded to encourage anyone with a disability of any sort to get together to have a chat and a cup of tea.
They do a range of activities, including tabletop games, art lessons, keep fit sessions and occasional outings. They regularly put together a display of their paintings created during their meetings, which include flowers, birds, animals and landscapes. They hold an annual show and sale of their artwork and all monies raised go towards the charity.
Everyone with a disability is invited to have the company of others in similar circumstances for a short time each week.
Come along and enjoy yourself. They meet every Wednesday from 2pm until 4pm in the Club.

The JAM Club is run by the Salvation Army in Wick and has been running for over 20 years now. It is self supporting so the money that the kids give at the door goes to craft, treats etc. They give some money away to other countries and have in the past given large donations to various groups.
Caithness Kids Living In Caring Situations is the only dedicated young carers project in Caithness and their aims are to support young people under the age of 18 years old who have a caring role at home.
These young people can find themselves caring or supporting a parent with a long or short term illness or who may have drug, alcohol or mental health issues. They could also be helping support a sibling.
Caithness KLICS aim to support these young people through one to one support, group activities and by working with the schools to ensure they reach the same potential as their peers.
They will support and encourage the youngsters to become more confident and build self-esteem so they can empower their own lives to be able to make their own decisions for their futures.
If you would like to come along they hold drop in sessions in the Club on Thursdays from 3:30 to 5pm.
