The Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) will continue its celebration of its 50th anniversary with ceilidh fundraisers across Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen in September. The charity has also produced Ceilidh Packs to help parishes to run their own.
The fun nights will bring supporters and staff together for enjoyable and energetic evenings of music, dance, food and drinks. There will also be raffles, games and face painting for the kids. The events will raise essential funds to allow SCIAF to continue its essential work in helping people to work their way out of poverty in some of the poorest countries in the world.
Edinburgh – 7pm, 5th September, Lauriston Hall, 28 Lauriston St
Glasgow – 7pm, 19th September, St Peter’s Church Hall, 46 Hyndland Street
Aberdeen – 7pm, 7th November, St Mary’s Cathedral Main Hall, 20 Huntly Street
SCIAF’s Director Alistair Dutton said: “Our anniversary ceilidhs will be lots of fun for all the family and a great way for us to get together with our wonderful supporters for a night of dancing and entertainment. There’ll be some great raffle prizes that people have donated, live music, games for the children and a cheap bar!
“So get your family and friends together and let’s mark this important anniversary year for SCIAF with a celebration. All money raised from the nights will go to our life-changing work and if you can’t make Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen why not put one on near you?”
