Pilates of the Caribbean
Putting the 'fun' into fundraising.
The home of Gordon and Carol Mann was transformed into a Caribbean island or at least, a Caribbean beach complete with beach bar on Sunday 3 June.
This was the latest adventure by the tea caddy ladies where every few months or so the ladies associated with the club in any way meet to socialise and raise some funds. The funds are collected in a tea caddy, hence the name.
Here we have a few photos taken on their latest escapade. The Caribbean theme on this occasion inspired the food and drink menu and some wonderful outfits and ensured they enjoyed themselves in the ‘Caribbean sunshine’. They certainly know how to put the fun into fundraising!
The donations made on the day brought the funds raised from this and recent similar events to over £500. The bulk of that sum is now to be donated to Friends of Saltersgate School to help save the school respite caravan. Saltersgate is a Midlothian school which supports children and young people with additional support needs. The school provides education for primary and secondary aged children from across Midlothian who have additional learning needs. Over 20 children from Penicuik attend Saltersgate. The respite caravan is based in Berwick and provides respite breaks for children and their families. It is specially adapted to cater for a range of disabilities.
