Happy Advent Surprises From Kirkcudbright Rotary Club

Christmas is coming early in Kirkcudbright with an Advent Book which will work just like an Advent Calendar. Each Book will have a number and for each day from December 1st to December 24th there will be a prize draw using the numbers on the Books.

After a difficult year for all fund-raising organisations including all Rotary Clubs, Kirkcudbright Club came up with the idea of asking local businesses and individuals to donate a prize or a voucher for this draw. Given the financial pressures of this extraordinary year, their response was amazing. There are now multiple wonderful prizes on offer for every day.

Proceeds from the sale of these books are to be used equally in helping to support our own Kirkcudbright Youth Project for young people between the ages of 9 and 24 and to help provide clean water throughout the year for rural farmers in SrI Lanka.

These Books cost £5 each or £20 for 5.  If you would like to buy an Advent Book, they are available throughout November from the following venues in town as well as at the Kirkcudbright Food Festival on 24 & 25 October.

Thomsons : Newsagents & P.O. St. Cuthbert Street,

Rhubarb : Home and Gifts , St. Mary Street,

Jakes Pottery & Coffee Shop St Mary Street,

The Corner Gallery: Designer Knitwear, Castle Street.

We at Rotary hope we can bring some welcome joy in these trying times, and help to keep our community hopeful and healthy, whilst raising money to support two very worthwhile causes.

This is only possible thanks to the generosity of so many people.
