On course to hit £1,000 target

A BURLESQUE evening organised to raise funds for Ninewells Hospital has so far raised £800.

The event, held on Friday, was arranged by Leigh Nelson, a tattoo artist at the Ink Minx Studio, and her friend, Vicky McLaughlin, who together form Burlesque Cares, which has so far raised more than £2,200 for local charities.

More than 100 people attended and all funds raised will go to the Tayside Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation (TORT) centre based at the hospital. The unit includes a combination of surgeons, bioengineers and other health professionals who provide trauma surgery and specialised clinics.
