Local Community Activities and Charities

See our other pages for more information about some of our varied activities within the community and our contributions to charities.


We are a small Club situated in the commercial and academic centre of Glasgow and thus with no clear residential community to form the nucleus of our help for charities and the community.  Our members' homes are scattered around the suburbs and far beyond.  But none of this deters us from working to make a real difference, as illustrated by the activities you will see on this Website
