Zoom Burns Night raises £240 for Just ‘B’

Burns Night Fundraiser
Fun and laughter at the Burns Night Supper

January is a dreary month. Raising money for charity when we have to social distance can be a challenge. But this did not deter President Sandra and club members. We had  fun and laughter as we celebrated the life of Robbie Burns and raised £240 for Just ‘B’.

Guest Kevin Millar addressed the Haggis in true Scottish style. Our Burns supper was a special treat with the fantastic support of the French Chef at Home’s takeaway. So we tucked into our Haggis, Neeps and Tatties as well as a super shortbread pud. After supper, Soroptomister Jonathan, a regular band member with the Dark Horse Ceilidh Band , played the accordion as we sang (on mute of course) My Love is Like a Red Red Rose. Lesley entertained us as she spoke about the life of Robbie –  and discovered he’d popped down to Yorkshire!!

Club members Maureen, Sylvia and Judith entertained us as we heard  about the Mouse, the Louse and the Highlands. Roger proposed the Toast to the lassies and Dorothy replied. We finished the night with a rousing rendition on Auld Lang Syne –  unmuted.  So not for the feint hearted!!

Just ‘B’ exists to ensure children, young people and adults across the Harrogate District get the professional support and information they need to cope with bereavement. We also offer expert emotional wellbeing support to the local community.
