We have two nominated charities which are Chas Children’s charity at Robin House and Cancer Research, however we try to help as many people as possible. For Cancer Research we collect the monies from the burn via our local Strathendrick Rotary and have a tin on the bar. So far we have raised over £800 for Cancer Research.

We also support Knightswood Primary with the “Soup Club”. Every year we go to the school on a Saturday morning for six weeks & teach the primary school kids how to make a pot of Soup. We do three groups each morning & with only 45 minute sessions the kids learn & make themselves a pot of soup. We have been amazed at how the kids who couldn’t even hold a knife at the beginning, take only 6 Saturdays & are comfortably making their own pot of soup…& its really tasty soup
After the six weeks, all the kids come out to the Beech Tree to have some soup & spend sometime with the Animals
