I do hope that you are all well and enjoying the lighter mornings and evenings. It does lift the spirit to see snowdrops and other flowers start to bloom in the garden - let’s hope that spring is heading our way soon.
The Committee are hoping to hold a meeting some time soon to map out the next steps for Probus. I will of course keep you informed of all decisions.
It is good that the Walking Group and Whist Group are up and running.
Can I also draw your attention to some information that Catherine has asked me to share with you regarding possible ways to aid the awful situation in Ukraine. We believe that The Roseburn Bar is coordinating an appeal for Ukraine / refugees this Friday. Goods will be picked up from there early afternoon on Friday 4th March.
I realise that this is very short notice and appreciate that you may well know of other collecting venues.
I also know that the Mid Yoken at East Craigs is collecting goods which will be handed over to The Edinburgh Ukraine Club at Royal Terrace.
Regarding monetary donations I am copying in information that Catherine has received.
I do hope that members do not mind me using this platform to forward on such information but these are exceptional, tragic circumstances and sometimes people want to help but are not too sure how to go about it. Apologies if I am duplicating information that you already were aware of.
