Tree Planting in Brora

The Rotary club of East Sutherland are very grateful to all the folk of Brora and Sutherland for all the support they have given to the Ukraine/Shelterbox Appeal which had St Columba’s member Alistair Risk camping in the snow in the grounds of the Church and which has raised around £5,000 (enough to buy 8 Shelterboxes).

As a thank you to the church three flowering cherry trees will be planted at the church on Tuesday 7th June between 3.30 and 4:30pm. The three trees will be dedicated:

  • For the Queens Platinum Jubilee
  • For World Peace
  • For the people of Ukraine

Canon James will bless the trees which will be laid by outgoing Rotary President Linda Graham, incoming President Elizabeth Sweetman and Polina, Alina and Olha, the three Ukrainian girls currently living in Golspie with St Finnbarr’s members Patrick and Henrietta Marriott. 

Anyone who wishes to join us for this event will be most welcome, tea and biscuits etc will also be provided.
