Quiz Night to raise funds for local charity

A FUNDRAISING Quiz Night is being organised by North East SNP MSP Mark McDonald to raise money for local charity Gordon Dementia Services (GDS).

The quiz will take place at Inverurie Town Hall from 7.30 to 10.30pm on Saturday, February 9, and tickets cost £10 per team of up to six people, and are available from Mr McDonald’s office at 84 North Street, Inverurie and Gordon Dementia Services, Pleyfauld House, Bainzie Road, Inverurie.

As patron of the charity, Mr McDonald is holding the event to raise awareness of the service provided by the charity and to raise funds to support the service and the important work it carries out throughout the community.

GDS is based in Inverurie and provides the best possible care for its service users throughout Aberdeenshire, giving their families and relatives the assured knowledge that their loved ones are being looked after in a most professional manner.

A day care club is attended by around 50 people with dementia with group activities including crafts, entertainment, gentle exercise and social outings.

GDS is based at 3 Pleyfaulds House, and employs a manager, Evalyn Collie, and five part time staff.

Mr McDonald is currently looking for local support from businesses and members of the community to help raise awareness of the event and would encourage anyone who wishes to donate raffle prizes to contact his office.

Commenting, Mr McDonald said “This is a cause very close to my heart and I wish to encourage members of the community and local businesses to get involved in the quiz night and support the local charity.

“The service and support provided by GDS is essential to Inverurie and surrounding communities and I hope people will come along, dig deep and donate what they can to this worthwhile cause.”
