STONEHAVEN DIALYSIS UNIT

Portlethen Rotary have already made a Club contribution to the fund to establish a Dialysis Unit at Stonehaven and in association with our Motherclub - Stonehaven Rotary we continue to support this very worthwhile local cause.

One member recently did the "Ice Bucket Challenge" and as you can see on this link to the YouTube video he is requesting that donations be made via the justgiving link:

Past Presidents Iain McLeod and Graham Knight

 

Portlethen and District Rotary Club organised the recent annual lunch of all the Rotary Clubs in the North East.

BBC personality and "weel kent" Robbie Shepherd kindly volunteered to be our speaker at the event and Robbie spoke of the help he had received from the local UCAN charity. £400 was raised at the lunch and Portlethen Rotary has since raised even more. The picture shows Graham Knight and Robbie Shepherd with a Cheque made out to UCAN for £700.

 

RotarThe TRotary Meetings to be "More Fun"

President Moira recently commented on the image that Rotary presents to the public. Moira said, "We are often seen as folks from an older generation who do good works. While this image is partially true, we have younger members and we do try to do good in our local community and internationally but we also have a lot of fun.  In fact it is my resolve in my Presidental year that we have even more fun.

If you are in the Cove Bay, Portlethen or Newtonhill district and are looking at this site for the first time - come along and join us for a complimentary meal and find out what Rotary is all about.

We meet at the Newton Arms, Newtonhill on Tuesdays at 6.30pm.

As you can see from the pictures - we are a friendly bunch!

 Newtonhill Primary School raised £500 for Polio Plus

As part of the club's contribution to Polio Plus, members Alistair and Anne McNair collected a cheque for £500 from the P5s at Newtonhill Primary School. As part of an enterprise project, the class learned about Rotary's hopes of eradicating polio worldwide. They organised a Purple Pinkie day for the whole school, and also a Bear's Birthday competition. Well done P5s!
