Bottles and baking can be dropped off at 20 Burnside, Kirkwall or Robertsons Oil Depot,Shore Street, Kirkwall any time this week or next.
The Club are also very lucky to have the BLUE DOOR for one week starting on Monday 7th September. Keep an eye on the website but goods can get dropped off at The Club on Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturdays once the Minis get started.
It is great we have so many bairns in the Junior section - please help us use these opportunities to get the fundraising off to a flyer.
Thank you for your support,
