Charity Ball in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow – Friday
14th August 2015
A very special thank you goes to Charlene Dickson who organised the most amazing Charity Ball in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow on 14th August in memory of her sister Ashley Dickson. This fantastic evening was hosted by Susie Maquire, who ran an auction with a vast selection of items on offer and a raffle which had so many prizes that it had to be drawn in 2 parts. Everyone also had the opportunity to enter a draw to win a week-end trip to Barcelona, enjoy a fashion show, and following dinner those who had the stamina then hit the dance floor!
To you, Charlene and everyone who supported this event and raised over £10,000 for Epilepsy Connections – thank you and we are extremely grateful to you all.
