A BURNS Supper held in Inverurie Town Hall last Saturday (January 26) has raised around £20,000 for charity CLAN.

The event, hosted by local firm I & K Motors, was attended by 240 people, who were entertained by the Garioch Fiddlers, Piper Audrey Barnett, singers Alistair Barnett, Inverurie’s own Steve Innes Jnr, and band “Bags of Rock”.

Steve Innes Snr of I & K Motors compered the evening which featured Duncan Naysmith (“Address to the Haggis), Chris Chittell (Emmerdale’s Eric Pollard) who gave the Toast to the Lassies” to which Lorna Innes gave the reply, and Doug Duthie (“Immortal Memory”).

The evening featured a host of fantastic auction and raffle prizes, including dinner for 12 at Candacraig House, home of Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, and a unique bespoke pendant designed and manufactured by Sinclairs of Inverurie.

Steve Innes told the Herald, “The evening went extremely well, and once again we are extremely grateful to the generosity of the people of Inverurie who contributed to this very worthwhile cause.”
