Burns Night supper raises cash for charity

A SPECIAL Burns Night celebration has helped to raise almost £1,000 for charity.

Burns Night was celebrated at St Andrew’s Church in Monkseaton with a supper, bagpipes, poems and speeches, in aid of the £7m appeal in respect of the redevelopment of Westminister College, Cambridge, the United Reformed Church’s training college.

Appeal chairman Brian Long and his wife Marion attended the Burns Supper which saw almost £1,000 raised for the charity.
