A great night was had by everyone who attended the St Cadoc’s Gala Charity Dinner on Saturday at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel.

A fleet of buses whisked the guests to the champagne reception followed by an intro from Gordon Duncan, host of Clyde Super Scoreboard.

Brilliant host Tam Cowan then literally took over – no-one was safe! Tam, who gave a brilliant performance, again waived his fee for charity for the fifth year in a row.

Celtic legend Bertie Auld then took a bow and kicked the evening off in some style with a song.

Tam was then joined on stage by an array of special guests including Neil Lennon, Ally McCoist, James McFadden, Fraser Wishart, Jack Ross, Gary Locke, David Gray, Simon Donnelly, Andy Walker and Stevie Aitken.

St Cadoc’s very own Ricky Gillies somehow escaped the abuse, but Ross Meechan was not quite so lucky.

The actual White Band then blew away the stage with a succession of great songs.

This fantastic night raised large sums for charities including local food bank Trussell Trust, Scottish Action for Refugees, St Andrews Hospice, Schiehallion Appeal – Kids Beat Cancer, Clippens School Linwood, Radio Clyde’s Cash for Kids Appeal and Brightest Star.

The club thanks all who donated prizes, organised or attended the event.
