Have your say

The Aboukir Hotel folk group ‘Aff the Cuff’ made a generous donation to the Carnoustie Gala Committee last week.

£102 was realised on Wednesday, July 3, when members of ‘Aff the Cuff’ volunteered to play an hour earlier than usual as it was Gala Week.

As a mark of his appreciation for this gesture Dave Scorgie donated to the Carnoustie Gala Fund a percentage of the bar profits for the evening which amounted to £82, which he then topped up to £102.

Our picture shows Ken Johnston from ‘Aff the Cuff’ presenting the cheque to Carnoustie Gala Committee chair Mary Bushnell at the Aboukir Hotel as Dave Scorgie (far left) and members of ‘Aff the Cuff’ and the Gala Committee look on.
