We are really pleased to announce that we raised £900 (profit) at last week’s Quiz Night. We would like to say a huge thanks to the wonderful quizmaster Jon Heggie who made the night very enjoyable and entertaining. Thanks also goes out to Winton Brewery who gave us a great deal on the very tasty local beer. A special thanks to all our generous raffle donors who helped us raise over £350 on the raffle alone (I’ve included a full list below). And finally, thanks to all those who came along, bought raffle tickets, spent money at the bar and made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Parents may already be aware of the campaign by members of the community trying to raise much needed funds for the repair of Pencaitland Parish Church. In order to hit the target of £70,000 (now at £47,000) a number of local fundraising events are planned.
If you would like to know more about what’s coming up please visit the full story and list of planned events on the Pencaitland Community Council’s website.
