Our Philanthropic History

In the early years surplus funds were donated annually to a selected cause, usually to do with women and children and usually focused in Scotland or Edinburgh. In the more recent years, we have held various Fundraising Events in order to collect funds for our charity.

Particular projects were also selected for fundraising events--the earliest was to aid the purchase of a minibus for hospital transport. In subsequent years the Club has raised funds for the following charities:
