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.
