Allander Rotary news - sportsman’s dinner success

Allander Rotarians held their annual sportsman’s dinner in Milngavie Town Hall recently with guest speakers John Beattie, Finlay Calder and Scott Glynn.

Over 170 attended the event which raised £5000 to be shared amongst the charities CHAS, Milngavie Youth Centre, Kidney Kids Scotland and Shelterbox.

The recent winners of the local Rotary Youth Speaks competition senior category - the High School of Glasgow - have won the regional final and will now take part in the UK final in May.

The local round of Rotary Young Musician was held last week with two pupils from Douglas Academy - Magnus Walker and Penny Watson winning through to the District final which will be held in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on March 29.
