Keen anglers, Iain Macmillan and Dave Beech hosted a fishing evening in early March which raised in excess of £10,000 for Dougie Mac.
Famous within the fishing world, angling tutor and journalist Adam Penning was invited to Florence Sports and Social Club to provide fascinating anecdotes and to showcase exclusive photographs from his career.
Iain and Dave organised a trade fair, a fishing themed raffle and an auction; allowing attendees to get their hands on some great goodies for their much loved sport.
Dave was thrilled with the success of the event and delighted to help raise such an outstanding sum of money:
“We had a great evening for a very worthy cause. Dougie Mac do incredible work within our community and we really wanted to do our bit to help them. Local businesses donated bait and tackle which we used in a raffle and we also auctioned a trip to France. This really helped us to boost the funds raised for Dougie Mac.”
This outstanding donation will help us to continue to provide our 24 hour patient care as well as purchase essential medical supplies and equipment. We are so grateful to Iain, Dave and all of the evening’s attendees for their very generous donations.
