Crichton GolF Club Burns Supper Piper & DJ
We were delighted to be a part of Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary’s Critical Care Unit Burns Supper on Saturday 1st February 2020 at the Crichton Golf Club. The CCU organised this event to raise money to support the amazing work of the Brain Tumour Charity – such a fantastic cause!
We started the night on the pipes, playing as guests arrived and piping in the Top Table. It was then over to Chairman Chris Lyon for the introductions and Selkirk Grace.
Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
It was then onto the main event – piping in the haggis! Of course it had to be the traditional Burns tune, A Man’s A Man For A’ That. After a fantastic meal by the Crichton Golf Club, we moved onto some great entertainment. Catherine Jardine kicked things off with a beautiful version of My Love is Like a Red Red Rose and then it was Dewi Williams’ brilliant immortal memory. We had David Christie toasting the lassies and Laura White with the reply to the laddies – both were excellent! We then finished off the formal part of the evening with Anne-Marie Cossar’s exceptional version of Gerry Cinnamon’s Belter – she had rewritten the lyrics to “CCU Belters” to recognise the amazing work of the staff at the Critical Care Unit, a really lovely idea!
After the formal part of the evening, we cleared the tables and made room for dancing! Sticking with the Scottish tradition, we got everyone up for a couple of ceilidh dances before moving onto the disco. We had lots of requests with everything from Usher’s Yeah to Jackie Wilson’s (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher.
Overall it was a fantastic night which raised an amazing total of £1100.00 for the Brain Tumour Charity. We were so pleased to be a part of the event and support this brilliant cause.
Here’s what organiser Anne-Marie Cossar had to say about us:
Ross was exceptional at our Critical Care Unit Burns Supper. Playing the pipes numerous times throughout the evening (beautifully) and also keeping guests dancing all night with his fab disco. We had a blast! Everyone is raving on about how great a night they had. Thanks again x ??Anne-Marie Cossar
