Dear Supporters and Friends,                                                                                     28th September, 2017

I can’t believe it’s Dinner time again?! The Scottish Wits Dinner will this year be held at 7.00pm for 7.30pm on Saturday, 11th November 2017. Please put the date in your diary and sign up your friends for what will be another outstanding sell out night.

We are now on the last dinner of this series – “An All Winners’ Final”

This year’s top table is sure to whet your appetite and needs only a brief introduction. Our speakers are Baroness Annabele Goldie, Leader of the Scottish Conservatives between 2005 and 2011 and exceptional after dinner speaker, Len Murray, Retired Solicitor and world renowned after dinner speaker and Bert Thomson, Retired Chief Inspector at Irvine. Our own Derek Murdoch will chair the evening with eloquence and wit as only he can!! Our entertainers will be Jocelyn Skanning and Friends from Centrestage.

After the resounding success of last year the dinner will again be held at Hallmark Hotel, Irvine who continue to support the event by donating the winner’s Quaich. The hotel are also offering very special rates for overnight accommodation and breakfast – Double Room £50.00 and Family or Executive Room £70.00. 

Your continued support has assisted the national efforts of Action Medical Research to improve the quality of life for children with disabling and life threatening conditions. You have also enabled Irvine Burns Club to promote the culture of Robert Burns as Wellwood Burns Centre & Museum continues to develop as a recognised centre of excellence and attraction where relics of the Bard, his manuscripts and documents relating to his life and work are exhibited.

Please send me, by letter, by email, or through personal contact, your ticket order. Wine lists will as usual be sent out before the event for return no later than the week before the dinner.

Yours sincerely,

Billy Dickson, Hon. Treasurer, Wits Dinner Committee.
