The good sports
Pair entertained at club’s charity dinner
Cambuslang Rotary Club’s recent sportsman’s dinner was a great success.
The evening was chaired by Guy Miller, who is a past Rotarian of the Carluke Club, and he kept the event running smoothly and to time.
Held in Kirkhill Bowling Club, there were 101 attendees who enjoyed an excellent meal prepared by Willie McCallum’s catering team. After the meal they were entertained by Jim Leishman, who recalled his early days in football with Dunfermline Athletic along with many other funny moments from his life.
The second speaker was Eric Davidson, who is appearing at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and he entertained his audience for over 45 minutes. Not only did he have them laughing at his jokes, he also provided his own musical accompaniment by playing his ukulele!
Jim Leishman also conducted the auction and helped raise the magnificent total of £1700.
The reason for holding the event was to raise money principally for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and Sense Scotland but the club will also be giving some of the proceeds to local and international charities.
The evening raised the sum of £4500 which will greatly help all the rotary clubs’ nominated charities.
