Beetle drive

Over 70 members and friends enjoyed a social night at Irvine golf club with a beetle drive, quiz and bingo.

It was the First social event held since pre covid and the support from our members was great. It was also nice to see some of our new members joining in the fun.

The proceeds from the night went to the earthquake disaster fund and, after gift aiding we were able to donate £817.50.

The Captain and committee would like to thank all who attended and those who brought raffle prizes and donations.
