The Rotary Club of Irvine Seagate
The Club was poised to organise, in July 2020, a revival of the Dragon Boat Challenge as part of the 'Making Waves Festival', North Ayrshire contribution to the Scottish Government's Year of Coasts and Waters. However, as teams were starting to confirm, in February/March 2020, the impact of the Covid epidemic caused its postponement, and possible cancellation.
Fullarton Hub made a sustained effort over many, many months to help local families who found it difficult to manage during the epidemic, their Hub becoming a busy centre of food preparation, under the leadership of Donna Fotzpatrick. Seagate Rotary assisted with a donation from our funds.
In September, the Club continued to support saxophonist Emily Irvine by contributing to her hair-chopping fund-raising in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Scotland.
