Celebrating Scotland and all things Scottish
Seventy five friends and members of the Church enjoyed an evening where we celebrated with the music, language, culture, and taste of Scotland. We were entertained by accomplished local musicians: a singer and an accordionist, who quickly got us clapping our hands and tapping our toes. We listened to, and joined in, with the signing of the “old favourites”, as they evoked special memories.
We heard a story told in the Glasgow dialect, and our knowledge of all things Scottish was challenged in a quiz.
Our other national drink flowed freely, there was an abundance of haggis pies, clootie dumpling, shortbread and tablet to enjoy.
We raised money through our silent auction, which included a “Ness” handbag, a cashmere scarf made with the “Peace of the World” tartan, jewellery, and many other items.
Competitions such as guessing the weight of the dumpling, and guessing the cost of the hamper, kept everyone busy. The hall was looking cheerful decorated in tartan and saltire flags, but, alas, we have no photographs to share as the photographer was having so much fun she forgot to take them!
A big thank you to everyone who came and for helping us raise £640. We are glad you came and we value your support. We look forward to welcoming you at our next event – details will be posted here.
