 Volunteers honoured at annual SLC awards ceremony
Community Service award to club member
Jimmy Lindsay

                                          lindsay 2014

                            Cambuslang community stalwart, Jimmy was given a community award for his voluntary work with
                            the Boys’ Brigade and for his annual Santa routine – which local  residents contribute to.

Jimmy Santa

        Each year Jimmy dons a Santa Claus costume, hops on board the back of his friend, and Cambuslang BC member, Ralph Caldwell’s jeep and waves to the children of the Morriston Park Drive estate, whilst his wife Margaret and helpers dish out selection boxes to the local children.

Jimmy’s grandson Jason (11) rides shotgun and provides Christmas music for the annual event, which has been going on now for the past eight years.

           Jimmy was nominated for the South Lanarkshire Community Service award by Councillor Russell Clearie MBE

Provost Eileen Logan said: "Hosting this annual awards ceremony is the best part of my job as Provost.
It is a very humbling experience to hear of just how much good work is being carried out in our communities.

“These awards allow my fellow councilors and I to acknowledge the achievements of some of the army of volunteers out there who work tirelessly for the good of others - making their lives that bit better.
“Their selfless dedication to helping others cannot be calculated by money - or even by the hours they put in.
The knock-on effect makes our communities as a whole so much better for everyone. So that is why we have this awards ceremony every year - to pay our respects and honour our volunteers for what they do."

Congratulations Jimmy!
He now adds his name to the list of Cambuslang BC members who have been honoured for their community work in South Lanarkshire Council.   [See home page]

  June 7th 2014 Hoad Memorial tournament

The annual Jimmy Hoad Memorial Triples was played last Saturday 7th June, when 63 players took to the green under threat of a
very poor weather forecast.  In the end, the weather won the day, as play was abandoned when the green flooded after each team
had played 4 of their 5 scheduled qualifying matches. 
The winners were declared on the basis of scores at that time, and they were the Uddingston rink of Brian Magowan, Don Bell
and Ian Charlton.  The picture shows the winning triple with sponsor Stewart Hoad and club president Scott Hunter. Stewart was
his usual generous self, and his efforts raised over £600 for club funds, and we are very grateful for his continuing support.

£180 was raised from an auction held during the Jimmy & Audrey Hoad Memorial Triples. 
This was added to other donations and £1,180 will be split equally between Cambuslang & District Voluntary Care Club and Ward 4 at Hairmyres Hospital.  See Charity
