Gor­don McHugh, chief ex­ec­u­tive at the hos­pice, said, “It was fan­tas­tic to work in part­ner­ship with such a won­der­ful group of peo­ple who all live lo­cally like me.

“They did a ster­ling job in selling ta­bles for the event and bring­ing in the raf­fles and auc­tion prizes.

“The at­mos­phere was ter­rific and Paul Cooney was out­stand­ing as al­ways as master of cer­e­monies with the won­der­ful Ge­orge McNeil and Bill Copeland en­ter­tain­ing the au­di­ence with in­side sto­ries and ‘windups’ which had ev­ery­one in stitches of laugh­ter.

“I would par­tic­u­larly like to thank ev­ery­one who at­tended the event and for sup­port­ing our fundrais­ing ef­forts – they di­rectly help us to fund the ser­vices we pro­vide to lo­cal pa­tients free of charge.

“I would also like to ex­tend a big thank you to Emma Suther­land of City Hold­ings along with Cather­ine Dou­glas of the Kerr Prac­tice and Fiona Wal­lace of WH Mal­colm who worked ex­tremely hard in mak­ing the event such a suc­cess.”

Ser­vices pro­vided by Kil­bryde Hos­pice are avail­able to those peo­ple with pal­lia­tive care needs.
