Popular Aberdeen ceilidh band Iron Broo will be providing the music at Mar Lodge near Braemar on Saturday July 30th to raise funds for the Archie Foundation at Aberdeen Sick Children’s Hospital.
The ceilidh, open to the public, is the brainchild of Fay Jolly whose two year old daughter Fern received treatment at the hospital and Fay has been inspired to action in gratitude for the excellent service Archie provided.
Mar Lodge will have a licensed bar, and a hog roast will be provided by Sheridans of Ballater. There will be a prize raffle to boost Archie’s funds yet further.
Transport to and from the venue will be available from Banchory, Aboyne, Ballater and Braemar and tickets to the ceilidh are priced at £10, or £15 including transport.
As well as a chance to enjoy a fun night out in aid of a worthy cause, it’s an excellent opportunity for those keen, literally, to take the first steps towards ceilidh dancing expertise, as instructions will be provided by the band for every polka, reel and jig.
To reserve tickets, contact Fay Jolly on 01339 741233 or Fiona Crawford on 01339 887672.
