Raft race fund-raiser

MARYKIRK Raft Race Committee is already planning its next event and aiming to raise even more money than this year.

The race in May realised a magnificent £6,000 for charity and a fund-raising programme has started in a bid to help the group exceed that total.

A recent quiz night raised more than £200 and the next event will be gig by local band Burlesque at the Marykirk Hall next Friday, November 18.

The doors will be open from 8pm and the performance gets under way at 8.30pm.

There will be a licensed bar and food.

Tickets are available now from Marykirk Hotel, Mearns Hardware Store in Laurencekirk and by calling Wilma on 07738 825375.

Details about the gig as well as a Christmas-themed quiz night at 7.30pm on December 10 at the Marykirk Hotel are also available on the committee’s Facebook page and its website at www.marykirkraftrace.com.
