Annual White Feather Fundraising Event
After our annual Charity event at our Bowling Club we have lauched our 2 new appeals and have raised the phenomenal sum of £1,075!!!!!!!!!!! How amazing! Thank you to all our supporters as without your continued support we would not be able to raise a penny!! £12,925.00 to go!!
Really looking forward to our 2nd Annual White Feather Ball on the 10th May 2014 - although hopefully we can have a few coffee mornings, sponsored bungee jumps or selling home made baking etc before the big event!
Thank you so much again!
We have been asked by one of the Research Scientists at the Centre for Immunobiology, Institute of Infection, at the University of Glasgow to assist with the purchase of a piece of specialised microscopy equipment to assist with the cause and treatment and cure of cancers and other diseases. The Cost is in the region of £7,000.
We have also been asked to buy items for the St Andrews Hospice in Airdrie, the items required and cost will follow hopefully within the next week or so - as will more detail on the Microscopy equipement.
What are your thoughts - two very worthy causes - let us know if you have any other suggestions?

Congratulations to Iain Craib on completing the Etape Calendonia 81 mile cycle!!!
Iain completed the race in 4hrs 34 minutes and 31 seconds and came 1783 out of over 4000 cyclists - amazing!!!!!!
Well done to the lucky person who guessed the correct time!!
This photo of Iain was taken just after the race - he doesn't even look puffed! Well done! Still collecting monies from sponsorships so when final total is counted we will reveal his fabulous achievement and add that to our massive £12,505!!!
Thank you so very much again!
Still waiting on photos from our other athletes to update you with their achievements! We are very very grateful!!!!
Thanks to the generous St Johnstone supporters who visited the Wellcroft Bowling Club before today's exciting final!
We raffled a signed St Johnstone Football, presented to us by Scott Brown and raised the phenomenal sum of £141.00!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so very much for your generosity! Well done to lifelong fan Sally Melloy who won the ball today! Chloe and Jess are acting as her body guards for the day!
This enhances our total which now stands at £12,706 and more to come from our fantastic athletes!
We have to give another massive thank you to Iain Craib, who not content with completing the Etape Caledonia 81 Mile Cycle for our 2 Appeals for St Andrews Hospice and Glasgow Biomedical Research Centre, is back with a vengeance and is participating in another cycling event over this bank holiday weekend.
Superfit Iain is cycling once again for White Feather in the Fit for 14 Commonwealth Games - Tour de Venue, and intends to raise even more money to ensure we complete out two appeals.
We cannot thank him enough - to cycle one race for us was absolutely wonderful but to do another event within 2 weeks ensuring we are one step closer to our target is unbelievable and we are truly overwhelmed and touched by his kindness.. not to mention astounded by his energy and fitness!!!!
The Commonwealth Games - Tour de Venue consists of 3 stages with a prologue and will be a total of 257 miles over 4 days!!! Phenomenal achievement!!
The prologue cycles throughout the City of Glasgow and the surrounding area's sporting venues and stages 1-3 will be cycling around the following venues :
Strathclyde Country Park
Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh
Gleneagles – Ryder Cup
and 257 miles later back to Glasgow!!!
If anyone would like to sponsor Iain click onto onto our website donate link :)
Thank you so much again.
Good Luck to Diane Tobert who is brave or should I say mad enough to compete in Sunday's Edinburgh Marathon!
She is a wonderful person and has agreed to donate all the sponsorship raised to White Feather which means we hopefully will reach our target in no time and be able to complete our two current appeals.
We cannot thank Diane enough and will be with her all the way!!! She certainly deserves a cool glass of wine at the finish line What a star
Many congratulations to Diane who unbelievably managed to complete the 26.2 Mile Edinburgh Marathon - and may I say from this photograph she looks fabulous and not even out of puff!
This phenomenal achievement has already raised £395.00 and we cannot express our thanks and gratitude to Diane for choosing us as her favoured charity - she is truly amazing and puts us all to shame!!! Thank you so much!
Hope you drank copious amounts of wine after the race you certainly deserved it!
This photo was taken just after superfit Iain completed his monumental cycle over 257 miles over 4 days in the Fit for 14 Commonwealth Games - Tour de Venue!!!!!!! Like Diane he doesn't even looked puffed! Amazing! How can anyone look so fresh after what he has endured!
This is hard to believe but Iain has cycled on behalf of White Feather a total of 338 miles within 2 weeks (not to mention all the training he has completed) and in addition to the amount Iain raised at the Ball he has amassed a further £325!!!!! Amazing!!!!
We cannot thank him enough and are truly grateful! Thank you also to everyone who donated - we are another step closer to our target now
Congratulations to all our supporters and for everyone who fundraised on our behalf.
We have completed our goal and the Tranquility Room at St Andrews Hospice is well and truly open. Eileen and I had the honour of opening the room for the benefit of the patients, families and staff alike. What a beautiful, bright and calming room! The complete transformation needs to be seen to be believed - well done St Andrews Hospice.
In one corner of the room there are fabulous custom made stain glass windows, which even incorporate a White Feather (have a look at the photos) which we were incredibly touched by. These windows enhance the room and the colours and ambiance they bring ensures that the room has a welcoming, calming and peaceful aura.
Thank you once again for making a real difference to St Andrews Hospice and it will be our absolute pleasure to help them once again in the future.
The Microscope we also pledged for the Glasgow Biomedical Research Centre has now been paid for in full and we are simply waiting confirmation from Professor Graham that it has arrived and is in use. For more photos click here.
£14,000 Raised for St Andrews Appeal and Glasgow Biomedical Research Centre Appeal - Thank you so much everyone!
A massive thank you to Jim Packer and Jim Metters of Strathclyde's Finest for their wonderful donation of £1,000 presented to White Feather in September.
Jim and their members enjoyed a tour of several Bowling Clubs during this season and by holding court they imposed fines and penalties on certain players for numerous misdemeanour's including 'Not having the correct hair style', 'Having a button missing from a shirt', 'Shoes not being polished properly' and so on.
A riot was had by all resulting in this phenomenal donation - thank you so very very much - it is most gratefully appreciated!
Strathclyde Really are the finest!!!
