The day started with sunshine and ended with a torrential downpour. Luckily, it did not rain on the Liverpool Parade. A good turnout of our Clubs in the Liverpool area, with Members on parade from Liverpool Murray, SAMS Murray and Bootle Murray, as well as members from nearby Lancashire & Cheshire Murray.
With this Parade so close to the SAC Rally, football in Scotland leading Police Scotland to insist on an ‘out of season’ event, numbers in recent years have been less than in the past. Good to see numbers improve and hoping that that small increase is repeated in years to come. Southport was welcoming and a good day for all.
Back in Scotland and the SAC Rally offered the opportunity to meet with each of our four Scottish Branch Clubs on the day. It was a glorious June day, and an excellent turnout in the Kingdom of Fife.
Organised by General Committee many Parent Club Members attended a Service in St Columb’s Cathedral on the afternoon of 26th March to reflect on Members and family of members who died during Covid and perhaps hadn’t had the Service that would have been usual. The collection at the Service was dedicated to Medical Research, and after discussion with the Research wing of Altnagelvin Hospital a cheque for £1000 was handed to the Respiratory Research team in June.
