Ways & Means Activites

The Club Tent assembled and ready for action at one of our local fund-raising venues

The Ways & Means Team are the main fund-raisers. We staff all the fund-raising events whether for the club itself or events for other local organisations to keep a footprint of awareness in the local community. In addition, we keep an inventory of the Club Equipment, ensuring it is in good repair, replacing it as necessary, appropriate for each event and transported to the right place, at the right time.

We form a Rapid Reaction Group to respond to any requests for support for fund-raising from local organisations at short notice.

Our main Club fund-raising events are:

Dice game at Aboyne, Aberdeen and Ballater Highland Games, the Braemar Gathering and the Tarland Agricultural Show.

  • Bag Packing at the Aboyne and Ballater Co-ops.
  • Golf Charity Day at Aboyne Golf Club.

In addition we support local organisations such as:..

  • Running a BBQ at the annual Aboyne Bonfire/Firewoks night
  • Selling tickets for the "Archie" Christmas Car Raffle both locally and in Aberdeen
  • Running Quiz Nights 
  • Fund-raising by means of a "bucket collection" at the Aboyne Highland Games car park, half of which goes to the Games Committee. 

For 2018-19 the Ways and Means Team continue to arrange staffing for the Club’s fund raising events and provide the necessary logistic support, continuing the long standing tradition for our dice game at the local Highland Games, Gathering and shows at Aboyne, Ballater, Tarland and Braemar

 We run a successful tote for the Duck race at the Ballater Duck Festival with a number Rotarians very involved in other aspects of the organisation of the event. Members will have a chance to barbeque for the public at the Aboyne Bonfire and Fireworks night in November, probably assisted by a few pupils from Aboyne Academy, our Corporate partner, and we hope for more assistance from them at our annual Bag Packing at the local Co-ops in Aboyne and Ballater as Christmas and New Year approach.
The team are, as always, reliant on the willingness of the members and friends to support these many events and are grateful for those many who give their time willingly for these.”
