Fund Raising Report 2020

Report to the 2020 AGM by convenor Robert North


As with all Rotary activities Fund Raising has been severely curtailed in the last three months due to the Covid-19 Lockdown. Planned events have been cancelled and projects ‘in running’ have been scaled down.

ULTIMATE QUIZ

The Quiz was held at East End Park on the 15th November with 16 teams taking part. A total of around £3000 was raised, £1500 going to Children In Need and the remainder to RCWoF charity funds. Thanks to all those who were involved in organising the event and helping on the night, particularly Tom Pettigrew who has worked hard over a number of years to make this the regular successful event that we enjoy.

CROSSFORD MUSIC GROUP CONCERT

Just over £500 was raised for RCoWF funds at this event held at Crossford Village Hall on 23rd November. We were much indebted to the Crossford Music Group for their efforts in arranging and staging this fundraising concert. The evening was very entertaining and enjoyed by all who attended. We look forward to continued working alongside the Music Group going forward.

Thanks to Ewan Archibald for his liaison with Music Group.

Thanks to Brian Mitchell for providing the wine!

RACE NIGHT

With the spectre of Coronavirus looming over us there was some doubt as to whether this event would go ahead. In the end the event was held at Dunfermline Golf Club on Saturday March 14th but on a reduced scale from that originally envisaged. That said it was an excellent evening enjoyed by those who attended and perhaps one last hurrah before we were forced by necessity to abide by the lockdown restrictions.

The event raised around £550. This was well down on original target but very pleasing given the circumstances and thanks are due to all those who contributed towards the event. Particular thanks are due to President Brian who was landed with MC duties at short notice and did a fine job. Thank you also to the Tote Sellers who formed an informal rota on the desks which worked very well.

Yours Truly? Just give me some horse racing and that keeps me happy!

MONTHLY DRAW

Thanks are due to Stephanie Blackden for her continuing organisation of the Monthly Draw. It has been agreed that in the short term the draw should be suspended and the funds held for distribution to causes where the need arises. 

ROTARY SUPPERS

The supper calendar was started but few had taken place when we were forced to suspend activities. I suspect we will carry over the supper schedule into the next Rotary year, but at the moment we await developments on the practicality of social events going forward. Thanks to Sandy Paton and Brian Mitchell for sorting out the schedule. 

OTHER PLANNED EVENTS

Ceilidh with Crossford Music Group – The event was planned for May at Dunfermline Golf Club but postponed due to ‘lockdown’ with new date to be arranged as the situation allows.

Curry Lunch/Evening – A date was not arranged for this event and it has but put on a back burner until restrictions are lifted.

Am-Am Golf – George Primrose sent out requests to his contacts to see what interest there was in holding the golf event. However, this came to a grinding halt due to lockdown. Thanks are due to George for his continued efforts on this front.

The fund raising target for the year was £12,000 but we fell to a shade less than half of this figure due to circumstances well beyond our control. That said, there was less money spent from the pot in the second half of the year so we have some money in reserve going into the next Rotary year.

Thank you to the members of the Fund Raising Committee who have all been involved in driving particular events forward over the year. Much of the work done is in the background and unheralded but a vital function with our club.
