Meeting Update – Yorkhill Childrens Charity

At our latest meeting on Wednesday 3rd June we welcomed a number of guests. Two prospective members were present – one on his first visit who was happy to help us finish the Krucovice beer. We were also joined by Steve Taylor of Yorkhill Children’s Charity who told us his story and about the marvellous work that the charity do for the largest children’s hospital in Scotland. All present admired the work that was done and Steve’s emotional story hit home with a number of the fathers and uncles in the group.

Our guests were rewarded with a Chinese carry-out which for once, everyone agreed was pretty good. No dodgy stomachs on Thursday morning have been reported yet.

Business followed where after lots of deliberation, we sadly decided that we would be unable to send anyone down to Drayton Manor as part of Round Tables Biggest Wish. As Jamie wrote on Facebook:

Unfortunately, the care or transport needs of each nominated child were too great to go such a long way for one day out so regrettably we have been unable to send a child to The Biggest Wish day out.

We also reluctantly agreed to postpone our forthcoming Race Night event which was raising fund for Cafe Project due to another event being on in the town on the same night but will rearrange for later in the year.
