Thrift Shop Update for June   22/23


 


June Prize Draw


Monymusk Senior Citizens hold a monthly prize draw to raise funds for a summer bus trip and Christmas lunch for senior citizens. The first prize is £100 and the second prize is £25. The Draw must be made with non-committee members present to make sure everything is done properly so it will be made on the second Thursday of each month in the Thrift Shop where non-committee members will be present to oversee proceedings.

There are some draw numbers available. You can get a form to join the draw, which costs £26 per year or £13 for six months (equivalent to only 50p per week), by sending an email to Elsie Aiken (bandeaiken@btinternet.com) or phoning Louise Craigmyle (01467-651359).

The names of winners will be posted here each month.

The winners for June were:
£100 Vi & Jim Taylor
£25  John Walls

The winners for May were:
£100 Stevie McDonald
£25  Pat Low

The Senior Citizens Committee needs folk to come forward and help to organise the Summer Bus Drive and the Christmas Lunch. The number of folk on the Committee is falling each year while the number of Senior Citizens who benefit is rising. If you know of anyone (including yourself of course!) who could make a contribution to helping the Senior Citizens please contact Elsie (651459), Euan (651470) or Louise (651359).

Thank you.

Neil McArthur
Neil McArthur who runs the event said:

" For me another successful event. Everyone enjoyed the day and I would just like to thank the huge team of volunteers who once again rose to the occasion in so many ways. We made a surplus of £4,900, bringing the rolling total up to just over £31,200, all this money has gone to local and other deserving good causes. Thanks also to the residents of Monymusk Square "



Monymusk Litter Clear Up 2017

Following the successful litter pickup of 2106, lots of folk turned up on 11th March to clear the roadside litter that accumulated since then.

The main road up to Tillyfourie and part of the way towards Kemnay were cleared on a very rainy morning.

The collected rubbish filled four very large bins provided by Aberdeenshire Council.

When they returned, the volunteer litter clearers were rewarded with coffee and cakes in the Hall.

David Hawson, who helped organise the event said on Facebook:

"Many thanks to all of you for coming out on a filthy day and picking up filthy rubbish. The attached photograph shows how worthwhile it was -- four bins, only just able to cope with the amount we found. What a monument to waste! Especial thanks to Gavin Forrest from the council who provided all the picker-uppers and organised the bins."

Thanks are due to Susan & Alistair Reid and to Susie & David Hawson who organised the whole thing.
