Handing over a cheque from fund raising
Handing over a cheque from fund raising

Each year we choose a different local charity and raise money for that charity.

We do this by arranging daytime and evening events that members can enjoy.

The events have been as diverse as talks about Natural Pearls and Forensic Fact and Fiction including a pathologist and a crime writer.

We have garden parties, bridge lunches, quiz nights, wine tasting, race nights, fashion shows and golf clinics.

To date we have raised well over £250,000.

Recent recipients included Macmillan Cancer Support, Stuart Resource Centre, Aberdeen Epilepsy Appeals Committee, Give Kids a Chance, Diabetes UK Grampian Voluntary Group, Alzheimer Scotland Drop in Service, Crossroads (Caring for Carers), Friends of Aberdeen Citizens Advice Bureau, Laparoscopic Surgery (Aberdeen Royal Infirmary), Aberdeen Cyrenians and British Heart Foundation.

The list goes on as the club is over 40 years old.
