Fundraising for Life-saving Charities

In recent weeks we've been fundraising for two fantastic charities - the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.


In recent weeks, we have been actively fundraising for both the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).

For SCAA, we set up an online JustGiving page with a pledge that we would match £ for £ up to £500 of online donations.  We promoted this campaign via our Facebook page and it ran for a bit more than a month.  We topped up the funds raised by our pledge.  In addition we received a donation from the Cushnie Shooting Syndicate which no longer operates and they donated the balance of their funds - an additional £1,300.

For RNLI, we were asked if we could provide volunteers to set up a collection stand at Aldi supermarket in Inverurie for 2 days in May.  We readily agreed to this and 21st and 22nd May we had 14 Club Members on a rota at the supermarket.   Not only did this raise funds of £500, it also gave Club members the opportunity to meet (socially distanced and masked) face to face for the first time since the start of the pandemic.  At each shift changeover, a different group of 4 Rotarians were able to meet and greet each other and spend a little time catching up - or even meeting new Club members for the first time!   A very welcome small step towards normality.

Volunteers at Work

This year Rotary's theme is "Serve to Change Lives". One of the many ways we do this is by volunteering our services to community groups, for fundraising activities and for general support where our community needs us.
