Our singers enjoy a hot drink or mulled wine after singing in Birnam
Each year we offer to sing at local care homes. This Christmas it was the turn of Luncarty Care Home and Rivendell House in Birnam.
Treasurer Helen and President Pam welcome the first customers to our charity pop-up shop
The shop was organised from concept to delivery in just two weeks! We opened on 1st December for 7 days, and raised £2,000 from donated clothes, jewellery, toys, CDs, bric-a-brac and much more.
Members of the Rotary Club of Perth St Johns joined the big-hearted membership of 1st Luncarty Guides to support a mammoth gift-packing appeal in the run-up to Christmas
Leader Gillian Telford and her guides took on the challenge of filling 450 Rotary Shoeboxes. Our club provided the boxes, and the project is also supported by Sandy Dow of The Rotary Club of Perth who collected and stored the boxes ready for dispatch abroad.
Filled with toys, toiletries, educational items and household goods, each Shoebox is sent to a family in Eastern Europe who are struggling with basic everyday necessities. The scheme helps over 50,000 individuals living in poverty in countries such as Romania, Albania and Moldova.
The guides have taken on this project for several years now. Each year, they display outstanding effort and enterprising ability to ensure hundreds of boxes are filled with support from family, friends and their local community. We thank all the young people and their leaders for their generosity and hard work.
|We meet:||Every Wednesday from 12:45pm to 1:45pm.|
