Community

We’re very proud that through our enjoyment of Scottish country dancing we also make a substantial contribution to the community. Every year the proceeds from our Charity Dance, as well as other funds raised throughout the year, are donated to local charities. Since the year 2010 donations approaching £12,000 have benefitted local charities. Our charity for this year is Wycombe Homeless Connection.

 

Cheque presentation to Lindengate Charity (2018)

Lindengate is incredibly grateful to the members of the Lucy Clark SCD Club for their generous donation, which will help us to continue to support those with mental health needs through Social and Theraputic Horticulture. We are an award winning mental health charity, based on a 5 acre horticultural site in Wendover, Buckinghamshire. The charity supports people from the age of 16 into old age with mental health needs such as autism, aspergers, loneliness, anxiety, depression, brain injury, bipolar and dementia.

Anne Mills, Lindengate Charity (2018)

 

Thank you very much to all your Scottish Country dancers for choosing us as one of your charities this year. Your generous donation will provide 12 members with treatment that is so beneficial to their well being. These include physiotherapy, oxygen therapy, occupational therapy and counselling. We support both those living with MS and their carers. We couldn’t keep the centre going without the support from people like yourselves. Your donation means the world to our members.

Cheque presentation to Medical Detection Dogs (2016)

I would like to thank everyone at Lucy Clark Scottish Country Dance Club for your recent wonderful donation of £1,000, a most valued contribution for which we are truly grateful.  Your support will help us to continue our ground-breaking charitable work, which investigates the potential of dogs to assist clinicians in the early detection and diagnosis of cancer and other diseases.  Our work also includes the training and placement of specialist Medical Assistance Dogs that alert their owners prior to a medical emergency allowing them to lead a more normal life with increased independence and confidence.

Cheque presentation to Chesham Sick Poor Fund (2015)

We were absolutely delighted you chose us to be your charity in 2015. The money you raised will make a real difference to ten local families that have been hit by a devastating crisis in their lives. There is growing demand year on year for our service and we saw a 30% increase over the last twelve months, so fundraising is vital to our charity.

Margaret Vincent, Chesham Sick Poor Fund
