“All OCs, living in Scotland and further afield, are most welcome! Please note that this year we are widening our invitation to include your family and friends. Friendship is a core College and Old Campbellian Society value and one I feel very strongly about, counting OCs I went to school with amongst my closest friends today. I look forward to welcoming you and your guests to a fantastic evening on the 30th November.” OCPhil Calvert (7399)
"Where better to celebrate St Andrew’s Day this year? Please come and support the Scottish Branch in Edinburgh this year for what promises to be a fantastic night, as arranged by OC Phil. This year saw our biggest ever Annual Dinner in Belfast, with 160 guests in attendance (January). This was followed by a really successful London Branch Dinner (March), where London Branch Hon Secretary, Gav Gordon (8091) and Dom Shek (8173) welcomed 84 guests to the Army & Navy Club, Pall Mall. We look forward as a Society to working with Phil on this and really appreciate everyone’s support.” OC Society Chairman, Michael McAllister (7444)
