Gala team calls football veterans into fundraiser
Ravelrig Riding for the Disabled in Balerno was the big winner at a recent sportsman’s dinner at the Gala Maybury Casino, when more than £5000 was raised for the organisation.
The casino’s management team organised a fundraising evening and attracted speakers in the shape of Old Firm and Scotland international veterans Willie Henderson and Frank McAvennie.
They were joined by former Motherwell and Morton winger John Gahagan, a football coach and award-winning after- dinner speaker.
Hearts took along the Scottish Cup and, for a £10 donation, the revellers had their photographs taken with the trophy.
Ravelrig is in the process of raising money to build an indoor arena so that its disabled clients can ride when the weather is bad.
Run by a band of dedicated volunteers, the group has very high annual running costs and relies on regular fundraising events to survive.
