Community Service

There are projects ongoing as follows

(1The Head Teacher of Oldmachar Academy, Mrs Judith Mohamed, had emailed me on 4th March 2015 to say she was thinking about how the Club could help the School; I  am awaiting the conclusion of our discussion which I expect to be some kind of assistance with further mock interviews, if appropriate,  in the light of the recent school inspection and how the School  prepares its pupils for the world of work.

(2)Assisting the Bridge of Don Community Council with planning and delivering the Bridge of Don Festival 2015 which will be a series of events throughout summer 2015; Mark Duffy is the co-ordinator within the Community Council. In addition, the Club has received from the winding up voluntarily of the Bridge of Don Community Trust, with the agreement of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR),  a sum of money to spend on charitable projects within Bridge of Don. We need ideas . I propose to meet the Community Council to ask for their views for us to take into account. It does not have to be spent all in 2015/16.  

(3)Kids Out Aberdeen on Wednesday 11 June 2014 with the annual Risk Assessment led by our Club Service Committee, with an annual Club contribution for 2015. A similar commitment is expected for June 2016.

(4)Risk Assessments: eg for Kids Out Aberdeen (David Blair attends the KO Aberdeen  Committee meetings), for our Club’s annual charity fund raising exercises, and for helping the Fetereso Saloon Car Rally in April/May  2016 where Club members are volunteer car parking attendants, and for the annual Santa Charity collection at Bridge of Don/ASDA.


A great deal of Members‘ time and personal resources.
