Club 1777 - District 1010
Welcome to our Club
We are based in the ancient Scottish capital of Perth. History is perhaps neither our raison d'être nor strength but it does provide us with a sense of belonging. We feel that we are a part of Perth and we support many activities within the city and the local area. In true Scottish tradition, some of these activities embrace the world.
Karen Morrison who visited the Rotary Club of Perth Kinnoull in May this year, returned on 1st October to collect a cheque for £1,500 on behalf of STAR (Siblings Reunited) from Gillian Marsh, last year’s President.
STAR reunites Brothers and Sisters separated in the care system, through adoption or Kinship care by providing the opportunity for quality and regular Sibling contact. Run from its unique farmland setting it provides a safe, fun and exhilarating learning environment where children can foster emotional bonds and help overcome the trauma associated with being separated from their siblings in a natural, calming and fun environment.
