LADDIES will be dressed to kilt at a fundraising ceilidh in aid of Ardgowan Hospice.

A dram, dinner and dancing will be the order of the night at the charity’s St Andrew’s ceilidh in November.

Alex Mula, a hospice fundraiser, says a ‘reely’ great night is lined up — and a link-up with local store Smiths is set to help boost the coffers.

Alex said: “We have the Scottish Ceilidh Band, who have performed all over Scotland, playing so it’s really exciting.

“People can have a great night and at the same time raise funds for the hospice.”

Ian Murray, who also works on the fundraising team, is looking forward to trying out his ceilidh moves.

He said: “It will be a great night and will raise money for the hospice.”

Ian Wilson, a project manager at the hospice, added: “Alex has done a tremendous job to organise it.”

Staff at Smiths in West Blackhall Street have lent their support to the ceilidh.

They will donate 10 per cent from the hire of their Black Isle, Grey Isle and Hebridean Heather kilts to the hospice.

Jamie Docherty, a supervisor at the West Blackhall Street store, said: “We wanted to do our wee bit to help the hospice.”

The St Andrew’s Ceilidh is in the Gamble Halls in Gourock on Friday November 24 at 7pm.

Tickets cost £25 and they can be purchased by emailing or phoning 558888.
