TRANSFORMER APPEAL FUNDRAISER


Fund Raiser on behalf of the
Franciscan Refuge TRANSFORMER APPEAL





A fun evening was had by all at the La Drova home of John and Chrissy Wilson to celebrate St. Andrews Night. All guests were asked to wear blue and white.

Our  hosts prepared a traditional Scottish meal of soup, haggis, neeps and tatties  followed by a delicious raspberry and cream dessert.  Prior to the meal there was a quick quiz to discover who knew what about ‘All things Scottish’.   Once the meal was over there was Scottish country dancing, a sing song and then an auction.  The auctioneer was Alan Higgins and he encouraged all those present to dig deep for the goods on offer.

An amazing 260.15 was made on behalf of the Transformer Appeal plus a lot of fun was had by all those in attendance.
