The wee Black & Red family ceilidh is coming to Dyce in Aberdeen on the 16th January 2016 to raise awareness and funds for vasculitis support and research at The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation. Enjoy a drinks reception, three course meal, raffle and a great night of ceilidh dancing at the Marriott Hotel, Dyce, Aberdeen AB21 7AZ.
The event will include a champagne reception, three course meal, raffle and auction, plus the ceilidh itself. All proceeds will go towards the charity’s objectives: raising awareness of vasculitis, educating medical professionals, supporting patients and researching this rare condition.
Tickets cost £38 for adults and £12 for children, and are available here: https://www.thelaurencurrietwilightfoundation.org/ceilidh-reservation-2016.
Some of the money raised by the ceilidh will go towards vasculitis research at the University of Aberdeen (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/), under the leadership of Dr Neil Basu. To date, the charity has given £62,000 to the university, which has been used to support a three-year PhD research project on vasculitis, alongside a patient support group in the city.
Grant Currie, co-founder of the charity, said, “One shocking thing about vasculitis is that so little is known about it. “We have a public awareness programme that aims to educate both the general public and medical professionals, but our support of vasculitis research is completely vital.
We hope to see as many of our supporters from the North East as possible turn out to aid our campaign against vasculitis, celebrate the fifth anniversary of the charity and support the integral work to support patients!”
