  • Armed Forces Day - Helensburgh 24/06/2017

    SSAFA Dunbartonshire Street Collection

    SSAFA Dunbartonshire held their annual Collection on the streets of Helensburgh on Saturday 24th June 2017

    Thanks to all who supported us on the day and helped raise over £300, which was a fantastic effort despite the conditions.

    We would especially like to thank members of TS Neptune who did a sterling job raising £128.00 with virtually nobody walking the streets and on a day when the Waverley failed to get herself alongside at the end of the pier.
