Gordon Friends of CHAS dance held their latest event last Saturday at Ellon’s Station Hotel.

The supper and dance was desribed as “most successful” by organisers.

A very good crowd enjoyed their meal which was then followed by entertained by Ocean’s 3. The threesome provided great entertainment for those who attended.

They group performed lots of Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davies and other music from the same era, and beyond were delivered very slickly interspersed with dancing, jokes and lots of friendly chat that kept everyone happy for an amazing night out.

The charity are delighted to report that over £1100 was raised. Gordon Friends of CHAS have been working in and around the Ellon area for over 17 years. Over the years the charity have raised in excess of £280,000.

CHAS support 300 families a year in Scotland and the hospices provided by the charity provide places where families of children with life shortening conditions can relax, recharge their batteries and to simply have fun with their children.

The two hospices include Rachel House and Robin House, where there is expert care on hand for families at all times. The CHAS at Home team care for children and young people in their own homes across Scotland in between hospice visits or when they are not well enough to travel. Generally the support provided is short term but it is regularly assessed to ensure it meets the needs of each individual family. For families who live in isolated areas in particular, the service is a lifeline.

People can help the charity in various ways from donations, charity fundraisers, and by volunteering.
