OUR SUPPORTED KIDS WORLD WIDE
THROUGH CHARITY ADOPCE NA DALKU
At every Burns Night we conduct a charity auction. The proceeds of the auction go to support individual underprivileged children world wide via the charity Adopce na dálku. These are the ‘Friends of Scotland’ children.
Following the success of our 2017 fundraising, we now support 6 children: 4 girls in India and one girl and one boy in Zambia.
