On Wed 25th September members of the Cambuslang Rotary Club were joined by fellow Rotarians from the Rutherglen club in the first of a series of joint meetings planned for this year. The meeting was chaired by Cambuslang President Kenny Finnie who welcomed everyone and before a chance to share fellowship and exchange ideas over the meal.
The speaker for the evening was Christopher Steward, Chairman of the Glasgow Care Foundation, a Charity which was founded 140 years to help Glaswegians struggling with poverty. Christopher gave a very thought provoking talk about the history of the Foundation and the continuing work it does to support people and families in Glasgow who need financial help to buy basic household such as cookers & beds. The Foundation also give out community grants, provide caravan holidays and distribute toys and food vouchers at Christmas.
Cambuslang Rotary Club has been privileged to be recipients of grants from the Care Foundation over many years and these have enabled the club to provide caravan holidays for families, short breaks for carers and more recently to support Rutherglen Carers and the Healthy n’Happy Trust.
President Kenny thanked Christopher for his excellent talk and closed the meeting with the traditional Rotary Toast.
