A very successful lunch was held in Inverurie last weekend, raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis.

The Kintore Arms, Inverurie was the venue for “Handbags & Heels” Ladies Lunch, attended by over 130 ladies. More than £9000 was raised for the charity, and organiser and compère Steve Innes said, “I am overwhelmed at the sum raised. The generosity of people who donated raffle and auction items was exceptional.

“The ladies really got into the spirit of things, and they were extremely charitable on the day.”

The event was compered by Steve Innes who was also auctioneer for the day. Entertainment was provided by after-dinner speaker Bill Copeland, with music and dancing to C Red and a guest appearance by local singing star Stephen Innes.
