A group of Brechin ladies have raised over £1100 for the Cancer Research Relay for Life 2015, thanks to a 70s and 80s themed disco.

The ladies, Wendy Wilson, Susan Scorgie, Nicola MacLennan, Fiona Watson, Mandy Neish and Grace Murray, are also taking part in the Kirremuir Relay for Life race under the team name The Brechin Teuchters.

The disco, held at the Nova Suite in Brechin, raised £1105. Nicola said: “Thank you to The Nova, everyone who donated to the raffle and to everyone that came along to support us it was a fantastic night.”

The groups fund-raising initiative isn’t stopping, however, and plans are already in place to for a Pub quiz night.

Nicola explained: “The Brechin Teuchters are organising a Pub Quiz night on July 24 at The Brechin Arms, so anyone wanting to enter please contact a member of the team.

“Another quiz sheet should be in the shops in the next month so keep an eye out for it. Together we can make a difference.”

She added: “The Brechin Teuchters would like to thank everyone for supporting such a good cause and we are all looking forward to our 24 hour relay walk in August.”

Cancer Research UK’s Relay for Life is an inspiring overnight event that brings the whole community together for a 24 hour celebration of life and hope. Money raised through Relay For Life funds the work of thousands of scientists, doctors and nurses who are dedicated to saving more lives by preventing, controlling and curing all cancers.

Organised every second year in aid of Cancer Research UK, the Kirremuir event, which this year will be held on August 15-16, turns the Kirrie Show field into an impromptu campsite complete with stages marquees for non-stop entertainment.
