Fundraising events include the Annual Coffee Morning, usually held in April,  and the Quiz Night, usually held in February.   Other fundraising events, held in the past few years have included a sponsored parachute jump by one intrepid club member, Ladies Day, and a Charity Lunch, Music concerts held in the Byre Theatre, Art Auctions and hosting an evening with the Pampered Chef & other local specialist food retailers.  Events, held at the homes of members have included a Fun Day, Candlelite parties,  a Spring Tea and a Summer Barbecue.

Regular Social Events are the Annual Christmas lunch and a Summer Outing, as well as an International Evening, held in January,  when visitors  from overseas are often invited to attend.

The retired members of the club and former members, who are unable to attend evening meetings meet once a month, for morning coffee.

Each year, the President usually selects a charity to be the main beneficiary of the club’s fundraising efforts.  Club members then choose several smaller charities to support.  Charities which are supported may be local, national, or international.

The charities for  2016 -17 are:-

CEDAR (Supports children and young people to help recover from their experiences of domestic abuse and violence)

Toby’s magical Journey (Helping local children and young people with a diagnosed cancer)
