Members Event - 25th June 2014
10/06/2014

There was some discussion at our Special General Meeting on 26th March where we spoke with our members about arranging an event for them to attend to find out more about what we do, are planning to do and see some of our developments. This is something that has taken place in the past and has been highly spoken of by those who attended afterwards. 

After consultation with our members, an event has been arranged for Wednesday 25th June, starting at 10.30am and finishing about 3.00pm.

The event will start with a presentation in our Committee Room providing some information on our latest news, achievements and developments, providing the opportunity for those attending to ask any questions they may have, whilst enjoying a hot buffet lunch and tea/coffee. 

Afterwards, we will proceed with taking everyone on a tour of our latest developments in the Vale of Leven and Helensburgh, including the exciting new Hermitage development.

We are always looking to welcome more members to the Association. Unfortunately we have seen a large decrease in the number of members we have over the past few years. Whilst this event has initially been planned for members only, anybody who is keen to become a member is welcome to come along to this event to find out more about what we do, subject to numbers attending.

If you know someone who would be interested in becoming a member and coming along on the 25th, please provide us with their details and we can add their name to a reserve list and once we have confirmed numbers of who is attending they can be invited along if there is space. 

There will be the opportunity for those interested to join as a member on the day of the event, for just £1.00 for a lifetime membership. 

If you are a member of ours, or are keen to become a member and would like to come along to this event on the 25th, please send us a private message, email admin@dunbritton.org.uk or telephone the office on 01389 761486 and ask for Sam Degan, advising that you wish to attend and if you have any dietary and/or mobility requirements.

We hope to see many of our members and some new faces there!!


Recent and Future Fundraising
30/05/2014

We are delighted to say we managed to raise over £479 for our charities of the year for 2013/14. 

The chosen charities were Macmillan Cancer Support and The Scottish Transplant Unit in Edinburgh. The amount raised was split equally between the two charities and Ryan Taylor, Regional Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support (Argyll & Bute, Inverclyde, Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire areas) visited our office this week to collect a cheque for Macmillan and have a chat with us about the many great things the charity does to support people affected by cancer. 

This money was raised through staff donations for dress down Friday’s, our Christmas hamper raffle, ‘Guess the bear's birthday’ competition and a raffle/tombola held at a recent event held by Cairndow Clay Target Club.

The charities we have chosen to support for 2014/15, following nominations made by staff, are Macmillan Cancer Support and Alzheimer’s Scotland. Staff have already been discussing what fundraising events we could hold this year to raise money for these fantastic charities!
