What we did in 2018

What we supported, and how we did it

2018 was a busy fundraising year for Blairgowrie Rotary. Our classic car events, golf day, lottery, quizzes and other events raised enough for us to support good causes to the tune of some £40,000, including:

£12,550 to Cancer Research UK

£12,550 to Alzheimers Scotland

£6,500 to The Rotary Foundation, Rotary's own worldwide charity

£2,426 to Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance

£1,590 to fund local students at Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

£1,000 in support of Kirriemuir Rotary's Nepal Fundraising

£500 to ABF, the Soldiers' Charity

£2,500 to 17 local good causes, including

  • Blairgowrie and Rattray Museum
  • Newhill Primary School
  • Blairgowrie High School
  • Bookmark Book Festival
  • Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Services (PKAVS) carers hub
  • Blairgowrie and Rattray Braemar Association
  • Blairgowrie Lip Reading
  • Coupar Angus Youth Activities Group

A busy fundraising programme is now being planned for 2019 and Blairgowrie Rotarians look forward to continuing their support for local, national and international causes.
