Bundanoon Highland Gathering 2018 Disbursements
Disbursements “By The Community For The Community”
The Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee would like to acknowledge the effort and commitment from the large number of volunteers who gave countless hours of tireless labour to assist in making “Brigadoon” such an outstanding success for their 42nd gathering.
The committee ensures that it recognises this commitment by disbursing the profits raised on the day to local charity and volunteer groups. The money is distributed on a proportional basis to each organisation.
This is a highly significant opportunity for the local community to fund raise for their own specific groups by having a stall site or volunteering their services.
The Committee has once again fulfilled their obligation to the community by disbursing the funds raised on the day back into the community coffers.
Volunteers Make It Happen
The following amounts were disbursed:
Youth Groups $13677.30
Local Schools $3472
Community Groups $4175.50
Rural Fire Service $15507
Pipe Bands $16250
Total sum disbursed for 2018 $71,713.80
Brigadoon has therefore donated to the community chest in excess of $1.3 million since 1981, and as a volunteer committee we are extremely proud of our efforts in supporting the local community. The Bundanoon Highland Gathering would like to take this opportunity to express their deep gratitude to the local businesses and personalities from the Southern Highlands who supported and sponsored Brigadoon in 2018.
It is only through the generosity of people and organisations like them that we at “Brigadoon” can achieve our goals, maintain the already evident enthusiasm such a wonderful cultural showpiece, and continue to promote the Southern Highlands as a “Must See” tourism location but more to the point financially reward the local community for their outstanding volunteering efforts.
Finally congratulations to all the hard working dedicated members of the Brigadoon committee on their exceptional efforts and for once again producing an event recognised worldwide as the Premier Scottish Highland Gathering in Australia.
