The Sportsman's Charity Ceilidh

Prestonfield House Hotel

Saturday 28th September 2013

Our popular Autumn Ceilidh was held in the sumptuous surroundings of Prestonfield House on Saturday 28th September 2013.

As always we were made very welcome by James Thomson and his wonderful team. A great time was had by more than 200 guests, raising over £8,000 for charity in the process.

Scottish Love in Action was again the featured charity for this event, it caring for and supporting destitute and vulnerable children in India. The Sportsman’s Charity will be making a donation of over £6,000 to Scottish Love in Action from the funds raised.

Many thanks to all who contributed to this successful evening.
