Last week’s ‘A Night With’ event at the Tolbooth in Ellon raised £270 for charity.

This was the last event before taking a summer break.

Pub owner Martin Smith said: “The money kindly raised will go towards the running of the Grampian Strikers.

“I am most grateful to all the public who have supported our once monthly shows. We will resume in the autumn.

“I would like to thank Colin Grant for sharing his experiences of his time as a professional footballer. It was well received by another good turnout of locals.”

Event host Jack Nixon said: “For the autumn series, we intend to have a wider range of guests, and hopefully the continuing support of the generous Ellon public.”
