IT might have been a cold Saturday evening in November, but it didn’t stop the Bankies turning out in their numbers for a night of music, dance raffles and Irish Bingo, all in aid of Alzheimer Scotland research (Action on Dementia).

The event took place recently at St Stephen’s Hall, Dalmuir, and raised the fantastic sum of £2,420.

The raffle prizes ranged from fish suppers, hairdo’s, tickets to the cinema, to a tour around Auchentoshan Distillery. The music for the evening was provided by band Quigley’s Point.

Organiser Roger Clifford (pictured left), from Clydebank, told the Post: “The amount raised by the Bankies folk was fantastic. People are so generous. We received donations, of all kinds.

“One gentleman walked into the hall, at the beginning of the night and handed me an envelope, and told me ‘there’s a donation for the charity, now I’m away home’. When I opened it, there was a cheque inside for £200.”

Organisers would like to say a huge thank you to every one who helped in any way.

Roger added: “I also have to thank my son Roger Clifford jnr (pictured right) and Lisa Gardner for all their help.”
