A CANCER charity has received a boost from a fundraising event in Ellon.

Greg Smedley and girlfriend Kelly McIntosh raised nearly £1,400 towards Macmillan Cancer Support’s Mount Kilimanjaro expedition. Greg 27 and Kelly, 23, will be taking part for 10 days in September.

Their fundraiser was held in Ellon’s Station Hotel on Saturday night and entertainment was provided by the Ythan Fiddlers.

Greg, from Hatton, said: “We are delighted to have raised so much money and we would like to thank everyone who made it such a success.”

The pair were grateful for raffle donations contributed by businesses in and around the town, and by those who attended on the night.
