involved to have been able to help Gordon raise such a significant sum of money that will go towards helping some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”
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.
