Our AGM was held by email this year due to the restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Mother and daughter Sandra and Abby McMurtrie became our new club joint presidents.
They will be club presidents for two years.
This will be a challenging year for Abby and Sandra but we are sure they will rise to the occasion. A varied programme is being planned and although we are not able to meet face to face at the moment we are still keeping in touch using Zoom.
The club is supporting Fife Law Centre as it’s main charity this year. http://www.fifelawcentre.co.uk. Using a team of solicitors they are able to help people who might have difficulty accessing the justice system. A talk by one of their solicitors informed members what the Fife Law Centre does and how they are managing in the current situation.
Various ways of raising funds to help the centre are ongoing including making and selling face masks.
Support for Segal House
Work is ongoing supporting Segal House which provides services for homeless people. Recently a further 5 starter kits were delivered. These will be given to people when they are able to move into their new accommodation and contain a range of different items essential for starting out.
Start up kits being delivered to Segal House
Empowering Girls in Nepal
Abby is one of the region project ambassadors for this SIGBI project. Members have supported various activities to raise money for the project. Several members submitted stories to the Big Story Project. Helen wrote about her childhood in Kenya and came third.
In September four members took part in the virtual kilt walk and raised over £600 which was doubled by Sir Tom Hunter.
