Padiham party-goers had a real Highland fling at a Scottish-themed charity night.

Guests helped raise hundreds of pounds with a Burns Night supper for Pendleside Hospice at St Phillip’s Church Hall.

More than 50 people enjoyed a traditional haggis supper, a raffle, a Scottish quiz and dancing until late – all washed down with a dram of whisky.

Ann-Marie Differ, from Hapton who helped organise the event, said: “It was a great family friendly and community spirited event, a brilliant night was had by all, old and young.

“I would just like to thank John Hibbert who was the chef on the evening, Joan Lakeland who sold tickets, Donald and Lindsay Cameron for addressing the haggis and for the ladies reply, Jacob Lakeland who was the DJ on the night and Burnley Football Club and Tesco’s in Padiham for donating raffle prizes.”

Leah Mitchell, Fundraiser for Pendleside Hospice, said; “Thank you very much to Ann-Marie and the team of organisers for holding the event in aid of the hospice, we truly appreciate the support. The £360 raised will go directly towards patient care for the people of Burnley and Pendle.”
