Variety Club - Scotland

Written by 

I know I am a day late again this week, but I thought I would wait and update so I could include our meeting today with the Variety Club.

Today we were invited by the Variety Club to meet with Mr Jack Zimmer, and Mr David White, Chairman of Variety Club Scotland. The Variety Club had arranged to bring 1000 children to Bute, to enjoy a day of fun, this included clowns, police dogs, mountain rescue teams,radio Clyde, horse rides, motor bike rides,helicoptor displays and many more things.

At approx 1pm we were invited onto their stage and were presented with a cheque for £74,000!!!!! We aren’t getting the money exactly, so you won’t see it going onto our total, we simply have to send The Variety Club our bills for Calums Cabin.

What more can we say…………………………………..speechless eh!!!! (and thank you!!!!)

Thanks again this week, to all our runners in last weeks Glasgow 10k and Good Luck to those who are running again this week, some of you I know have completed 3 10k’s and some are going for 5 10k’s, you really are super fit folks, and we thank you very much for all your sponsorship work. Infact anyone who has run in the name of “Calum’s Cabin” this year - thank you.

Thanks also to a certain gentleman who has I am led to believe an incredibly sore back, after getting it waxed last weekend, thanks, and also it will grow back in I am sure!!! Also to all who gave and bought raffle tickets at the event - thank you, and naturally thank you to the organisers.

This weekend, sees a few events being organised by friends on the mainland, so thankyou, and we will be thinking of you.

Please remember that “Calum’s Cabin” quizzes are still on sale at £1 each, with the closing date for returned entries of 15th September. Good Luck to all.

Thank you to all of you, each and everyone, your continued support is greatly appreciated, and we are very grateful.

The total stands this week at £85,066.28 - how wonderful is that.
