A WHOPPING £3705.95 FOR CHARITY
Lady Captain Mary Corbett’s chosen Charity for 2019 was for the NHS Diabetic Endowment Fund. The fund is used to support people living in Dumfries & Galloway with Diabetes, and is managed by the local Diabetic Team and Dr Fiona Green, Diabetic Lead Consultant for Dumfries & Galloway. The money was raised with thanks to various fundraising initiatives. Lady members knitted hats, payed £1 every time they were in a bunker at the 4th, ladies Charity Texas Scramble, raffles, donations and Mary hiring out her parking space when not required. Brian Allison who organises the Gary Telfer Charity Texas Scramble made a large contribution towards the final total.
Mary and members gathered with staff to officially hand over the cheque at the opening of the new Mountainhall Diabetic Treatment Centre on Thursday 28th November 2019.
Mary would like to say a special thanks to the Ladies Section, Brian Allison and all the members who supported and made donations throughout the year.
