· Helping Internationally by supporting and raising funds for disaster related charities such as Shelterbox, Aquabox, Medecin sans Frontieres. We have also raised funds for Mary's Meals and the Wheelchair Foundation.
We mentioned the Social Side earlier and in addition to our weekly meetings we arrange visits to places of interest, e.g., the new Kilmarnock Campus of Ayrshire College, the new Wm. McIlvanney Campus that comprises Kilmarnock Academy and James Hamilton Primary School, the House of an Art Lover, etc. We have an annual Burns Supper and often explore local restaurants. We also have an annual Social Weekend and, for this, have visited Warsaw, Berlin, Lisbon, Versailles and St. Helier in the past five years.
