Legendary Scottish comedian and broadcaster Andy Cameron was the headline speaker at our Sportsman's Dinner on Friday February 19. Andy was supported by Perth Racecource's general manager Sam Morshead and master of ceremonies was Gordon Bannerman.
We thank our sponsors, guests who bid at the auction, and everyone who bought tickets. With your help we raised over £5,500.
The money raised went to Help for Heroes and three local organisations - DISIP (Disability Information Service in Perthshire, Perthshire Women's Aid and CheckIn Group. It also helped fund the work of our club over the next year.
We were proud to welcome The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland as honorary members of our club.
Honorary membership is the highest distinction a Rotary club can confer, and is given to recognise exceptional service and contribution to society.
Honorary membership is the highest distinction a Rotary club can confer, and is given to recognise exceptional service and contribution to society. Membership is normally given to individuals, so we have extended membership via a representative of The Black Watch, Colonel Brigadier Mike Riddell-Webster.
Once again we delivered Christmas Goodwill parcels to 230 families and pensioners in Perth. Due to the exceptional wintry weather it was not an easy task, but our members coped with the mountains of snow and slippery pavements that were everywhere in Perth. The parcels are provided by PKAVS.
