Every year the club makes charitable contributions to Burns charities and to a charity chosen by the President. The monies for this are collected from our very generous members and guests at the Annual Burns Supper. The general fund always tops this up. The total amount given is always in the region of £1500. At the 2016 AGM the club decided to donate £500 to each of CHAS, The Robert Burns Memorial Homes and Erskine Hospital £50 will also be giving to an epilepsy charity nominated by the out-going President. £100 will also go to the Jean Armour Trust for the personal use of the residents in the care home administered by the trust ( the fabric of the building etc. is undertaken by the Ayrshire County.
We are finally in a position to update and publish the ‘History of Dumbarton Burns Club’. This is due mainly to Mike Taylor's effort in reviewing the existing volume and writing the updating chapter; some new photos will also be included. This will require a visit to the printer in Dumfries which will be undertaken in early summer.
