Caroline Doherty held a cancer fundraiser event at the New Inn Hotel, Ellon, on Friday, August 16.

Caroline organised the one-off event to mark her retirement this year and also in aid of her son, Neil, who passed away from cancer.

She said: “I am really pleased with how it went. We had 200 people on the night and it went on until 1am. We raised the £5,000 target as well.

“Performer Derek Ryan was really good, we had seen a lot of him when we had been over in Ireland.

“There were local sponsors who donated to the two raffles. My husband’s company donated a 43-inch television!”
