Ayr solicitors raise an outstanding £3,351 at annual Burns Supper
Digby Brown’s Ayr office held their annual Burns Supper and Ceilidh night on Saturday 2nd February raising an amazing £3,351 for their chosen local charity Ayrshire Cancer Support. The evening took place again at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway.
Guests on the night were well entertained with the traditional Address to the Haggis, Selkirk Grace and our Ayr office’s very own Lee Murray doing Burns’ Ode to the Toothache. As usual there was a fantastic three-course Burns Supper which was followed by a traditional Scottish Ceilidh.
The entertainment for the evening did not stop there with a variety of fundraising activities throughout the evening, starting with a game of “Heads and Tails” with the winner receiving a litre bottle of whisky.
There was also the opportunity to win a bottle of malt whisky, bottle of Morgan’s rum or a bottle of prosecco in this year’s coin toss.
The raffle was another success of the night with a Nespresso coffee machine, a year’s family membership to the National Trust for Scotland, afternoon tea, a variety of gift vouchers amongst the 20 prizes on offer.
“We are proud as an office to be supporting Ayrshire Cancer Support and the vital work they do in our community. We know that the funds raised will be a great help to them and the services they provide for cancer sufferers and their families.
“I would like to personally thank everyone who supported the event, our programme sponsors and those that donated prizes for the evening. We managed to raise a fantastic £3,351 for a very deserving charity."
Ayrshire Cancer Support said: "We've just heard that the Digby Brown Burns Supper raised over £3,300! Excellent news - thank so much. Thank you to the team who helped make the night such a success, our volunteers who were able to attend had a fantastic night"
