Celebrations included an 80th anniversary brunch at Carstairs Village Community Hall, with members of the CYFC and family enjoying a fun-filled day of eating, drinking, raffles and live entertainment to raise money for the charity. Organised by the CYFC committee, the occasion raised a total of £2,200, with a cheque from the day being presented at the club’s Annual General Meeting on March 12th.

Over the anniversary year, CYFC held a series of events with the aim of bringing past, present and future members together to fundraise for RSABI. Alongside the impressive fundraising at the brunch, the CYFC organised a Three Peaks Challenge. Battling the dreich and drizzly weather, the climbers secured an impressive £2,459 for their efforts, taking the total raised by the CYFC to £4,679.
