Under our Pursue Your Dream initiative, we were able to give a donation to local lass Gemma Yoxall to buy some essential equipment to help her take up a place on her performance course. She attempted to teach Gordon some dance moves, but he was happier watching! We look forward to hearing how Gemma gets on, and of course seeing her on the big stage or screen soon!
We also once again sponsored the long service to volunteering award at the Midlothian Volunteer Awards. President Atholl was pleased to present this to Fiona Milton for her continued service at Highbank Day Centre.
We continue to support Storehouse, a local foodbank charity, and Smalls for All, a charity which helps supply African women and children with underwear.
We have a new Global Scholar, Molly, to support. She is from Texas and is studying at Edinburgh University under a Rotary scholarship.
In October, we voted to help the Button Box charity with a donation of more storage bags, and also bought 3 Shelterboxes.
On November 25th, we have a charity wine tasting at Newtongrange Mining Museum - for detail or tickets which are £15, contact the secretary or see our Facebook page
