Thank you Rosyth Dockies!

We were delighted to meet Fritz, a ‘Rosyth Dockie,’ to thank him for his recent fundraising! A member of the OADAAD organisation of ex- and current workers from Rosyth Dockyard in Fife, he climbed the Forth Bridge to support our work!

Fritz raised a fantastic £605.03 in aid of our work.  He is now retired from his work as a shipwright at the Rosyth Dockyard in Fife.  As a fundraising challenge, he asked his friends and fellow members of the OADAAD organisation to sponsor him to climb to the top of the north cantilever of the Forth Bridge. They were delighted to support his cause, and also contributed to the raffle he held at their annual shipwrights reunion in August.

Said Fritz “I always wanted to get to the top of the bridge as I could see it from my parents house many years ago in Dunfermline and wondered how the cars  could drive on it!!”  Fritz is pictured here with friends Garry and Trevor.

OADAAD – Once A Dockie, Always A Dockie – is made up of a big-hearted group of ex- and current workers from Rosyth Dockyard. They often get together for social nights and to support many local causes.  They’ve also recently supported the Victoria Hospital children’s ward in Kirkcaldy and Fife Women’s Aid.
