£2,000 raised for the Maggies Centre Gartnavel Hospital

Moira Kerr, Annabel Goldie, Helen Liddell, Helen Faulds and Sarah Perricone


On Friday 22nd February, Gleddoch House Hotel proved to be the perfect venue for a wonderful Jean Armour Night, which was thoroughly enjoyed by an audience of 120 ladies, and in the process £2,000 was raised for Maggies.

Gleddoch Golf Club's June Lockhart one of the main organisers along with Marion Dornon and Jackie Gray was the chairperson for the evening --- ( See video below)

 After a lovely meal, ladies were treated to two superb speeches. Baroness Helen Liddell delivered a Tribute to Jean Armour, and Annabel Goldie MSP proposed a Toast tae the Laddies.

A lovely recitation by Douglas Park's Helen Faulds (Kate o’ Shanter) was followed by excellent music from Cowglen's singer/songwriter Moira Kerr, who was superbly accompanied by violinist Sarah Perricone.

 The £2,000 was raised courtesy of those ladies attending and the generosity of 4 sponsors - Aggreko, Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management, Spirito and Top Mark Claims Management. The 2 prizes for the prize draw were donated by Gleddoch House Hotel and Spirito.
