Winter 2019   

We once again sponsored the long service to volunteering award at the Midlothian Volunteer Awards and awarded it to Dave Mackay of the Rosewell Development Trust. Unfortunately Dave was not able to be at the awards, however, it was collected for him by Robert Scott.
We continue to support Storehouse, a local foodbank charity, and had a special pants collection for Smalls for All, a charity which helps supply African women and children with underwear. we were able to donate a few hundred pairs at the end of October, thanks to all who donated.
We have voted to continue our kit sponsorship with the Dalkeith Thistle Pan Disability football team for another season. The team have swept the board with trophies and awards this year and we are very proud of what they have achieved in their first year and look forward to the next one.
We had another successful charity wine tasting night at the mining museum on 16th november. 
We were proud to give financial assistance to the campaign for a plaque to honour Group Captain Stagg, the DDay meteorologist who was born and schooled in Dalkeith. A number of members attended the unveiling ceremony by Stagg's son which took place on the 75th anniversary of D Day. 
A new venture for us, we are embarking on a micro-financing project, attempting to make loans to women in Africa to help start up or expand their businesses. We will start with ten loans which should be accomplished before Christmas. A ceilidh in Rosewell in January will help provide the capital for this.
