Busy fundraisers in Scotland

BDMLR volunteers in Scotland have been out fundraising recently despite the cold weather.

This weekend the team was at the Matalan store in Seafield, Edinburgh raising funds and talking to shoppers about BDMLR and our work.

Last weekend, volunteers represented BDMLR at the Scottish Sub Aqua Club Dive show in Eyemouth and earlier in the year were at the Family Fundraiser Day at the Police Headquarters in Edinburgh.

Many thanks to all who have been involved, including Corinne and Hannah, Craig, Dougy, Cath, Peter and Jessica, Carmen and Allan for all their hard work and support.

Corinne is putting together a book of ideas for BDMLR fundraisers to use, so if you have experience of fundraising schemes that have worked in the past, please email us at head office and we'll pass your thoughts on.

In early November, BDMLR volunteers in Thurso had a de-stressing fundraising evening with an 'eat all you can' desserts extravaganza! Many thanks to all the pastry chefs and bakers and to Audrey and John for organising this gastronomic experience!

Many thanks again all!
