Kilbryde Hospice is celebrating following the success of its annual Autumn Ball after the event raised a fantastic £33,000 on the night. The evening held at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow was hosted by Clyde 1’s Knoxy and featured performances from the Scottish Rockettes, Soul Town, Elle Crumlish and Roadhouse with around 250 guests attending.
This year the hospice decided to theme the event around ‘Old Hollywood’ Glamour and The Blue Parrot Company kindly provided the décor for the event including statues of the Blue’s Brothers
The money was raised through a variety of activities, including ticket sales, donations, a raffle, silent auction and auction. The auction featured amazing money can’t buy prizes including a meet and greet with Wet, Wet, Wet and the chance to appear as an extra in Kingsman: 2 starring Colin Firth which was kindly donated by comic book writer Mark Miller.
Kilbryde Hospice is a voluntary independent hospice which exists to provide specialist palliative care to patients with life limiting progressive illnesses, and to their relatives and carers. Services provided by Kilbryde Hospice are available to those people with palliative care needs.
Chloe Martin, Community and Events Fundraiser, at the hospice, said, “Thank you so much to everyone who either attended the Autumn Ball, helped to sell tables, donated a prize for the raffle, silent auction and auction. On behalf of the hospice a special thanks to all of amazing volunteers who gave their time to help in the run up to and on the night of the ball. We really wouldn’t be able to continue to offer the support and care we do without them. We would also like to express our thanks to the Blue Parrot Company, Alexander Fraser Photography and our Events Committee.”
