Party Night For The Archie Foundation
With Live Music From Scott Mckenzie
18 September 2017
September is Child Cancer Awareness Month and we thought what better way to support this by having a party and raising some cash for a worthy local charity!
The thinking caps went on and after much deliberation we decided that we would raise money for the Archie Foundation. One of the local lads has had a lot of support from this charity and we love supporting our locals.
About the Archie Foundation
They buy specialist equipment, support families, create amazing hospital environments, enhance staff training, buy toys, fund research, provide specialist staff and respond in emergencies. Their donors, volunteers and supporters make this possible and the foundation are hugely grateful to every single one of them.
The Archie Foundation exist to make a big difference for local children when they are sick, in hospital or in need of long-term healthcare. They also take skills learned in Scotland to develop children's surgical programmes in East Africa through their ARCHIE Global Surgery Programme. You can find out more about all of this here on their website.
So as you can see this was definitely the Charity we wanted to support... then it was a question of entertainment?
We had been approached by a local singer who has experience playing all over the city & shire and wanted to come and play for us, so we jumped at the opportunity to have him support our evening and aren't we glad we did! Scott Mckenzie is fantastic!
