Two CHARITIES are supported annually. These are nominated by our members and usually involve a national and local organisation preferably one to which some of our members have a special link.
The first charity is supported from January to June, the second from July to December.
Our charity from January – June 2017 was the Unicef Syrian Appeal for whom we raised £1000. The charity from July -December was the Gordon Highlanders museum and £800 was raised.
Our spring charity for 2018 was Lovat Lodge Hotel in Nairn , a ‘not for profit’ charitable trust catering for people with mobility problems. We raised £1000 which is being used for the purchase of a mobility scooter. Following the closure of the hotel at the end of 2018, the scooter was passed on to Shopmobility, a local charity.
Our July- December 2018 charity was Mary’s Meals for whom we also raised £1000, which sum was set to be doubled by the UK Government under their “Double the Love ” scheme. Our current charity for the 6 months to June 2019 is Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
