 The Fundraising and Development Team had another successful year:

 Patron, Shirley Manson, got 2004 off to a glittering start by hosting Waverley Care’s first ever ball,
 “Tartan & Tiaras”, to celebrate 25 years of Klownz Hair. Prestonfield, Edinburgh, welcomed 230
 revellers to a champagne reception followed by dinner and an auction. The tartan birled and the
 tiaras twinkled as the assembled company danced until the wee small hours, helping us to raise a
 fantastic £35,000. We are indebted to the enthusiastic organising committee: Gerry Burke; Alison
 Craig; Fiona Duff; Nicola Lee; Pippa Macleod; Sonya Moore and Joan Ross.

 Our BEINGTHERE project, which had started with the publication of a book of Stanley Reilly’s
 celebrity photographs, culminated in an auction in the magnificent setting of Harvey Nichols’
 Forth Floor Restaurant. This also marked the conclusion of a successful year as Harvey Nichols’
 Charity of the Year. This was our first ‘Charity of the Year’ partnership and we are immensely
 grateful to Harvey Nichols for helping us raise over £9,000.

 Our relationship with the Pleasance continues to go from strength to strength, raising awareness
 of HIV amongst Fringe-goers, and bringing in £17,000 through bucket collections and our annual
 Tartan Ribbon Comedy Benefit.

 Other activities have included our ever-popular ‘come and sing’ concerts, including our third “Viva
 l’Opera!” event; participation in outdoor activities including the Edinburgh Marathon, Great
 Scottish Walk and the West Highland Way and benefit performances by musical and theatre
 groups including the Dunedin Consort; Purves International Puppets; the Linton Singers and St
 Mary’s Cathedral Choir and Frank’s Pants’ presentation of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’. Our
 thanks are due to the many people who give so generously of their time, energy and resources.
