Rotary Club of Haddington held a Charitable Organisations Showcase event at the Corn Exchange on Saturday 15th September. We were pleased to be able to offer local charitable and non-profit organisations the opportunity to inform the public about the valuable contribution they make to our community and to have the opportunity to raise some money for their cause.

Twenty organisations took part and included Haddington Probus, Friends of the River Tyne, Blooming Haddington, Macmerry Men’s Shed, Amisfield Trust, Haddington Table Tennis Club, Haddington Tennis Club, Strive, Royal Voluntary Service Haddington Twinning Association, and Haddington Tenants and Residents Association.

The event was successful, and organisations were pleased with the level of interest shown by the public shown on the day. Some of this interest resulted in enquiries about membership. Several participant organisations raised significant donations to support their activities.

The Rotary Club of Haddington had their own event stand which highlighted the work that Rotary does locally and internationally. This was manned by our members throughout the day to respond to interest shown in Rotary and to answer any questions from the public.
