5th June 2019 - Club Assembly

Looking forward to 2019/20 after our 50th year when the club was able to distribute just over £8000 to various charities.

President Robert Dickie and incoming president Kenny Finnie present ADG Margaret Morton with a 50th anniversary banner.

The Cambuslang Club held their annual Assembly on Wed 5th June with special guest ADG Margaret Morton.  Incoming President Kenny Finnie spoke about his plans for the forthcoming year and invited the commitee chairs to outline their ideas for the 2019/20 session.  This will be the clubs 51st year and events planned include the annual Burns Supper, an ABBA night, a weekend away in Dundee and the successful Primary School Art Competition.

As well as looking forward to next year club members were also able to reflect on the success of the previous year’s fund-raising events.  During 2018/19 the club had been able to distribute just over £8000 to a wide range of charities – a record for recent years.

Amongst the causes to benefit were Polio Plus which received £970 and Rotary International partners Shelter Box (£1000) and Mercy Ships (£1000).  The club supported 2 small international charities working in the field of education, with £250 going to Kaloko Trust based in Zambia (who the club has sponsored for many years) and £200 to Classrooms for Malawi.  In the local community £200 donations went to the Cambuslang Voluntary Care Club, Camglen Buddies and CARROT and we also gave grants of £500 to Rutherglen Community Carers and Healthy n’ Happy.  Other charities supported were the DEC appeal for Cyclone Idai (£1000), Starter Packs (£500), SSPCA (£500), CHAS (£500), Brain Tumour Research (£350), Erskine (£250) and Lodging House Mission (£200).

Finally, the club was delighted to be able to donate £250 to the Glasgow Care Foundation (formerly Kilmun), a group which has been very generous in the grants they have given to the club over many years and which have enabled us to fund family caravan holidays and more recently support for carers.

None of this would be possible without the support of all our club members, past and present, and all those who consider themselves friends of Rotary.  Your generosity has ensured that our 50th year has left a significant legacy both within Cambuslang and beyond…
