Our target is to raise £12,500 from village activities. So far we have raised an amazing £8,500. We still need that bit extra to buy what we will need for the Centre before it opens later this year.
Mary McAinsh and Margaret Scott started the ball rolling with their Bingo Night which raised £240 for the Community Centre. Thanks Mary and Margaret!
Our weekly Coffee Lounge also raises money for the Centre. Thanks to our volunteers who keep the Lounge going from week to week!
The annual Kiltwalk saw five members of the community walking around Edinburgh and raising over £2500 for the Centre. Thanks to all who took part in this event - and those generous people who sponsored them.
The Kiltwalk is a low cost platform for us to raise funds. 140% of the money you raise will go directly to where it is needed most. This is because for every £1 you raise a further 40 pence is added by the Hunter Foundation. Visit www.thekiltwalk.co.uk and choose Glenfarg Community Centre as your charity. We plan to do the walk again this year.
A generous donation has been received from local buseiness, Earnside Coaches. A big thank you to the Rutherford’s for this. We have also received a kind donation from the Knitting Group. Thank you for this.And finally, the wonderful Panto raised an amazing £2,000 for the Community Centre! Well done to all involved. This was a tremendous event which sold out over two nights. Brilliant!
