ROTARY CLUB OF ST
The Rotary Club of St
Andrews was founded in November 1927 with only five members, but has
grown steadily over the years and now has seventy members.
The club is involved in
a wide range of initiatives, raising between ten and fifteen thousand
pounds each year. This money goes to support those less fortunate
than ourselves, both locally and abroad. The funds are raised in a
variety of ways including a Jazz Night, Sponsored Run, Garden Party,
the Dunhill Golf Competition Raffle, Spectacle Collection and Books
Abroad. The local and international charities which have benefited
from these fund raising events over the last few years include Polio
Plus, Cancer Research, RNLI, Diabetes UK, Breast Cancer, British
Heart Foundation, CHAS, St Andrews in Bloom, Erskine Hospital and
sponsorship of school pupils to attend a leadership camp and visits
to the European Parliament.
In addition to fund
raising, the club arranges the following community events: Kids Out,
Senior Citizens Treat, International Golf Week, Stroke Awareness Day,
Primary School Quiz, Student Family Link Scheme and Student Christmas

Pead, Treasurer of the St Andrews Partnership.
For the second year running, the ‘Brighter St
Andrews’ charitable fund has benefited from donations collected
from guests at the Best Western Scores Hotel.
The excellent sum of £652.00 was raised mainly
during the last festive season, from raffles on party nights and
during the Hogmanay celebrations. It follows on from the £609
donated the previous year.
Mr Brown said, “Once again, our generous guests
at The Scores were happy to support a good cause like Brighter St
Andrews, which helps preserve and enhance the town’s built and
natural environment. We were really pleased that the sum raised
exceeded last year’s total – and it probably helped that guests
knew that some of their donations would be helping to fund
restoration works on the Martyrs’ Monument, which is right opposite
our front door!”
Ray Pead said, “The success of Brighter St
Andrews depends not just upon generous members of the public, but
also upon local businesses putting in the effort to collect the money
from their customers. In this respect, Eric and his team have once
again proved their mettle. They really are Top Scores!”
