Charity ceilidh dance for Ninewells

A charity ceilidh and disco to raise funds for Ward 6 at Ninewells Hospital is to be held at David Lloyd Leisure near Monifieth on Friday, December 6.

Organised by staff from the ward, the fund-raising event will feature a mixture of traditional ceilidh music followed by a disco provided by well known band Tutti Frutti. A raffle and auction will also be held during the evening.

The idea for the event came from Ward 6 senior charge nurse Nicola Hedley. She explained: “Ward 6 at Ninewells is a Medicine for The Elderly Ward caring for older adult females.

“Staff thought it would be a nice idea to raise funds for the patients and decided that organising a ceilidh and disco night would be a fun way to do it. All monies raised from this event will be spent on patient comforts for the ward.”

Doors open at 7.30 p.m. and the last dance is at 1 a.m. Tickets for the evening cost £15 and include a hot buffet. They are available from Nicola Hedley on 01382 660111 extension 33806 or by e-mailing

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Ward 6 for the benefit of patients.
