The humanitarian spirit of Scotland’s great bard, Robert Burns, shone brightly at the Burns supper held at the Kelvin Grove Club, in Newlands, on Saturday February 11.

The annual charity event celebrates Burns’s birth and all things Scottish.

The event was awash with tartans of many hues, bagpipes, whisky, haggis, song, music and dance from the Highlands and islands.

A record amount was raised at the event to support the beneficiaries,
the Christine Revell Children’s Home for abandoned and abused inf-
ants and the Sarah Fox Hospital for palliative care and terminally ill children.

Speakers at the dinner included the Deputy British High Commissioner, Peter Boxer; Lord Simon McDonald of Moidart MBE; the
DA’s energy spokesman Gordon Mackay, CEO of the SA Fashion Council, Anita Stanbury and Premier Helen Zille.
