Greetings from Falkirk
Please can you help us in our quest for the Worldwide Toast to Robert Burns! As proud and passionate Scots we have decided in this Homecoming Scotland Year to co-ordinate a Worldwide Toast for the Bard. How to take part can be seen at this link.
Taking part in the Toast is easy:
1. All we ask if for groups, large or small, to gather together.
2. Raise a glass in a toast to 'The Immortal Memory of Robert Burns.'
3. Count the number of people 'Toasting'
4. Log on and complete a simple on-line form to record your toast details so that your numbers can be counted as part of the worldwide total. It would be great if you could send us pictures and video clips for us to show on the website. Thank you!
Counting has already started with the Sons of Scotland in Canada and The Caledonia Society of Alabama already adding their numbers to the worldwide total. Toasts have also been pledged by the Caledonia Society of Hawaii and many more clubs, societies, bars and groups of friends right across the globe. We are also fundraising for the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway. Shonaig Macpherson, Chairman of the NTS, referred to the campaign as 'an exciting project' and the thrilling yet simple 'Donate a Pound Campaign' will give the opportunity for all corners of the globe to contribute a single pound so that everyone can help to 'give something back to Burns.'
I hope that you can join in and encourage others also to make this the best celebration of Burns in History!!
All the very best - Steve & Julie
