Dear Members and Friends of the British Business Club Düsseldorf,
I hope that those of you who attended our Burns’ Supper celebrations on Friday 22 January enjoyed it. It was a splendid event, the club’s most popular, this time enlivened by the presence of a surprise star performer, a sword dancer, There were also the usual haggis, nips and tattoos, whiskey, Burns’ ceremonials and Scottish dancing. We will add some photos from the event to be website shortly.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to the kind sponsors of the Burns’ evening and the raffle and charity auction. Some EUR 1,162.00 was raised from the raffle and auction, the proceeds of which will be divided equally between the Royal British Legion, Rheindahlen Branch, and the Bahnhofsmission, Düsseldorf Branch.
The sponsors are listed below, in no particular order, with links, where appropriate, to their websites:
