The Station Hotel, Strichen, held it’s annual fundraising weekend in aid of Macmilland Cancer Support in October, the theme being ‘Old School’.

The Friday night consisted of a beetle drive while the Saturday night was an old school disco, where the customers and staff had to dress in school uniforms.

Later on the Saturday night, three men took part in the ‘Big School Boy Challenge’ which included various old school activities, including skipping, a spelling bee, and a lunch-box trial (not unlike a ‘bush-tucker trial’ on ‘I’m a Celebrity...’).

A coffee morning was also held in aid of the charity at the hotel. A big thank you goes to Marion and Gordon Thom of the Station Hotel for organising the events and hosting them in the hotel, as well as Tracey Macleod for also organising the event and to Claire Smith and Kim Martyn for working behind the bar.

Many local companies donated vouchers or gifts to the raffle, also, with thanks going to Fraserburgh Leisure Centre, Boomeragnds, the Happy Plant Centre, Fraserburgh Golf Club, Co-operative (Strichen), I. McIntosh Butchers, Bert Fowlie Butchers, and Miss K. Hair Designs for their generosity and continued support.

Thanks are also due to Top Flight Entertainment, who ensured all the old school hits were played.

And, most importantly, to the customers who never fail to attend and show their support.

In total, the events raised £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
