Sparkling char­ity event

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

Pros­ecco flowed and the ladies had fun while rais­ing cash for a wor­thy cause on Satur­day.

The lat­est event by the JMA Trust was held at St An­drews Pri­mary in Dum­fries and made around £800.

The well-sup­ported ladies day was an af­ter­noon of danc­ing, games and en­ter­tain­ment with a band and disco.

John Mau­rice Aitken, died in 2014 after a 10-year can­cer bat­tle – just a week short of his 33rd birth­day.

The for­mer Locker­bie Pri­mary and St Joseph’s Col­lege pupil, was a keen Celtic and An­nan Ath­letic sup­porter and The JMA Trust – which helps can­cer pa­tients and young peo­ple – is his le­gacy set up by fam­ily and friends.

Many lo­cal schools, or­gan­i­sa­tions and events have ben­e­fited from the char­ity.
