The night raised vital funds for Variety, which will be used to help improve the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children. Guests also brought presents, which will be distributed to schools and organisations supporting disabled and disadvantaged children. Thanks to these generous donations, more children will be given a magical Christmas this year.

Christmas presents will be given to disabled and disadvantaged children in Scotland

Guests were treated to a night of entertainment, including dancing, Christmas games, and an ABBA tribute band, ABBA Mania. It was a night of fun, festivities, and of course, fundraising.

Alan Frazer, Committee Member said:

A night to remember and a bumper fundraising event!  350 party goers had a ball at the Variety Scotland Ball and party. A packed dance floor danced the night away to the Jersey Tones , Abbamania and cult DJ George Bowies GBX!  Most importantly a large amount of money was raised for Scotland’s disabled and disadvantaged children. A tribute was also paid to long time benefactor Willie Paterson OBE who sadly passed away recently.

It was wonderful to be told by the guests on the night of the ball that they had danced the night away and had a fantastic time.  Roll on next year!
