PLEASANT & HAPPY MORNING: 21, JANUARY 2017
On a chilly but pleasant Saturday in January members received a warm welcome at the home of Dame Rosalind Newton. Aided by friends and members ‘Ros,’ as we know her, provided a most happy morning in aid of her chosen charity Arthritis Research.
Tea, coffee and snacks were warmly received and with a raffle, an auction, carried out by our Receiver General, success was inevitable. The conversation ranged over many different fields with new friendships being made and all present considered this start to the year, to be most satisfactory.
It was encouraging to have stalwarts of our Order present, who travelled from the West to Edinburgh to encourage Ros in her first class endeavour. Cheques appeared from those who could not be present and in the space of 2 to 3 hours £400 was raised for Arthritis care, a most crippling and demanding condition. The Council topped this sum up to £500. Ros asked that the money raised be used specifically for Arthritis Research in Scotland.
Apart from the money raised the friendship and companionship was a credit to our hostess and her friends to whom we say a very big thank you.
