Well it has now been done!
Club Member Stuart Scott has now raised over £1200 to support the Nyumbani Scotland Charity (see below)
Despite his needle phobia brave Stu overcame his fear and now has a Giraffe tattooed on his left leg (Stu calls the Giraffe Gemma in recognition of Gemma his tattooist).
Stuart and his wife Audrey will be travelling to Nairobi later this year to assist at the Nyumbani orphanage.
So a big “Well Done” goes to Stuart.
..and here is "Gemma"
The COGRI (Children of God Relief Insititute) Nyumbani Charity currently provides a primary and secondary school for children in the area as well as a state-of-the-art HIV screening laboratory which helps to keep the children free of AIDS.
Our Club Secretary Alison Stedman has been involved with Nyumbani for many years and has successfully brought £000's to this very deserving Project.

You can still sponsor Stuart by popping into his shop at Ladybridge Street in Arbroath....and maybe buy a few of his delicious smokies as well!
So now to business ....Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Arbroath, based in the historic Scottish east coast fishing port 17 miles north of Dundee.
Our thirty eight members are always delighted to welcome visiting Rotarians and we hope that if you're travelling to or in Scotland, you'll join the Club's Members in fellowship at one of our weekly meetings.
The town is home to the world famous smokie (smoked haddock) and was the setting for the signing of the Declaration of Scottish Independence in the presence of King Robert the Bruce in 1320. The ruins of Arbroath Abbey, where the signing took place, still dominate the town's skyline. The club meets every Thursday in the Meadowbank Inn, just outside Arbroath, at 5.30 for 6pm - see Meeting Information to the right of this text!
If you need to make contact with our club, or are interested in joining Rotary and would like to know more about what Arbroath Rotary Club get up to then an email to our secretary should work just fine; firstname.lastname@example.org
