Tribute to the Bard raised Â£3,000
A Burns Supper organised by North Lanarkshire Council has raised a magnificent Â£3,000 for Children in Need.
The event was the 21st annual dinner sponsored by CMS Windows, and was hosted by Provost Jim Robertson.
He said of the evening: “This is my last year as Provost and this is one of the events I will miss most.
“The generosity of those attending these events is inspiring, and those purchasing tables and donating raffle prizes contribute to making a big difference to the lives of vulnerable youngsters in our local towns and villages.
“I would like to than everyone involved in making this special evening such a success.”
Entertainment for the evening was provided traditional Scottish band Gaberlunzie.
