CLYDEBANK volunteers from Marie Curie will be selling tickets for an ABBA tribute night in the Erskine Bridge Hotel.

A newly formed fundraising group is holding the event on October 6 in aid of Marie Curie’s free and expert care, guidance and support for those with a terminal illness.

The Marie Curie Clydebank and Erskine fundraising group have booked Paul and Lynne from Heart Scotland to host the event which includes a four-course meal, entertainment from an ABBA tribute band, a DJ, raffles and stalls.

Tickets will be on sale at Erskine Bridge Hotel, 2pm-4pm on Sundays (September 16, 23 and 30).

Derek McIlwraith, chair of the group, said: “The night promises to be a fun filled night that local people of all ages will enjoy, on the night we have one of the UK’s best Abba tribute acts, Abba A Rival, which will be a show to remember.

“Local people can come along, have fun and know they are supporting the charity.”

The doors open at 7pm where there will be a selection of stalls such as jewellery, personalised clothing and sweets, and glitter face painting.

Donated raffle prizes so far include a meal for two at Nando’s and Cinderella Pantomime tickets for the SECC.

Every ticket sold supports the local Marie Curie nurses to provide free end of life care to patients.
