Garioch Amateur Swimming Club will host their Annual Ball this Saturday, May 9, at the Thainstone Exchange, Inverurie from 6pm to 1am.

This year the Guest of Honour is club member and Commonwealth Gold Medallist, Hannah Miley, who has supplied two unique items of memorabilia for the auction.

GASC are celebrating another first this season, as not only did Hannah take gold in the 400m IM at the British Championships, but fellow club member Orla Adams also made the final, finishing a very credible seventh.

Additionally, Alistair Miley also qualified for the British Championships, meaning that three swimmers from a small pool in Inverurie qualified for the premier British competition finals.

Hannah has been selected to represent Team GB at the World Championships in Kazan later this summer.

The Ball is a major fundraiser for the club and will feature an auction, and a raffle, with prizes including a signed Aberdeen FC shirt and football.

Sealed bids for auction items can be submitted to gascsec@yahoo.co.uk.

Tickets cost £45 and include a three course dinner and live music from “Last Resort”.
