David Miller (sister of Sandra, who was on the Hebridean Cycle) was the Club Captain at the Najrani Golf and Country Club, Saudia Arabia for 2012. The Captain is able to nominate a couple of charities who benefit from fundraisers throughout the year. We have just received a cheque for a whopping £3,200!!
Members took part in a number of fundraising events including raffles, golf skill challenges, Captain’s charity green and quizzes. There were also donations from other charitable organisations in town of Tabuk.
We would like to thank all of the golfers at Najrani, David and Liz for this fantastic effort.no comments

We were delighted to receive a number of unexpected donations over the last weeks or so. Currie Primary School raised money by running a French market at the school and Kayla Irvine nominated Katie’s Trust for a donation of £100 – thanks! We received a further £100 from Hinduja Global Services (aka Careline) who donated their winnings from the Hawick Legion AFC monthly draw – thanks! Megan’s Dad, Paul, continues to bring in the cash from his guess-the-mileage-in-Scotland competitions on his bus – thanks for the £150! And finally thanks to Dylan and his pals, who raised £42.30 by selling bags, bracelets and cards at Kirkhope PS coffee afternoon. Thankyou to everyone who donated!no comments
It is hard to believe that we are fast approaching our third Annual General Meeting on 3rd December! Agenda has been circulated to all Members. Many thanks to Stark Main Ltd for preparing the annual accounts.no comments
Katie’s Trust was given a tremendous financial boost on Wednesday of last week. Ann went into Careline in Selkirk to collect the money donated at their dress-down day, and was presented with a cheque for £101. And then later in the day we learnt that the Lunch in the White Church, Comrie had raised a whopping £940. There was just enough soup to meet demand, and the baking sold like ‘hot cakes’.
Many thanks to all the employees at Careline; and to Alix, Fiona, Robin, Rory & friends.
