Char­ity cash galore af­ter film night

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Two char­i­ties have ben­e­fited from film fans in the Glenkens.

Dalry Film Club’s char­ity night raised £590 to be shared be­tween Parkin­son’s UK and Marie Curie.

More than 70 peo­ple crammed into the town hall for a show­ing of the re­make of the clas­sic Whisky Galore, the club get­ting to use a new pro­jec­tion kit bought thanks to a Film­bank­me­dia Ltd grant.

Au­di­ence mem­bers were treated to tra­di­tional Scot­tish tunes from Anne Chau­rand on guitar and Fiona Edgar on fid­dle as they ar­rived. The evening ended with a well-sup­ported raf­fle and – in keep­ing with the film – there was a whisky-tast­ing ses­sion. As is cus­tom­ary with all Dalry Film Club shows, there was an ar­ray of home-bak­ing to go with the teas.

Jan Mat­ti­son, of Parkin­son’s UK, said: “It’s only through the com­mit­ment of groups such as this and the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple that we can pro­vide vi­tal ser­vices.We ap­pre­ci­ate their ef­forts.”
