Newton Mearns veterinary practice Vets4Pets has teamed up with one of Scotland’s funniest comedians to raise funds for a specialist charity.
Des Clarke is set to take centre stage at Whitecraigs Rugby Club on 9 September in aid of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland), an organisation providing care and support to families affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.
Those heading along can expect a night of laughter, as the Glasgow funny man entertains the audience with some of his best jokes. The Capital Radio host, who has interviewed some of the biggest names in showbiz, including Britney Spears and Robbie Williams, is a continued supporter of the charity, having performed at a number of fundraising events over the years.
Following the stand-up sketch, guests will be able to hit the dance floor and try their luck at a raffle. There will also be an auction where participants could be in with a chance of securing some fantastic prizes.
The night is being organised by Newton Mearns Vets4pets, which was inspired to support SBH Scotland after becoming aware of the work it does with local families. All profits raised at the event will go directly to the charity and will help to provide crucial care for more than 3,500 people in Scotland.
Michelle Barclay owner, Newton Mearns Vets4Pets said; “Being an active part of our local community is extremely important to the team at the practice. We became aware of SBH Scotland through one of our clients and both myself and my colleagues agreed we wanted to do something big to help support this wonderful charity. Des Clarke is one of Scotland’s best comedians, so it is fantastic to have him on board. While we can expect lots of laughs on the night, it is important to remember we’re raising funds for a very serious cause.”
Deborah Roe, SBH Scotland fundraising director, said; “I would like to thank the team at Newton Mearns Vets4Pets for taking the time to organise this event in aid of SBH Scotland. If it was not for the generosity of businesses and individuals who go out of their way to fundraise for the charity, we would not be able to fulfil our commitment to offer lifetime care to families affected by these complex disabilities.”
Tickets cost £12.50 and can be picked up at the practice in Greenlaw Village, Newton Mearns. They can also be purchased by calling 0141 639 3636 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
