A huge thank you to everyone who attended or contributed in any way to the success of our 14th annual fundraising Burns Supper which took place in the Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries on Friday February 7th.

An auction and raffle were held during the evening, helping to boost the total raised for Befriending Project funds to around £3000. The company was treated to a delicious three course meal and a packed evening of quality entertainment.

Master of Ceremonies was David Miller; the Immortal Memory was delivered by Alec Ross; Wigtown bookseller and author Shaun Bythell proposed the Toast to the Lassies; and Dr Elaine Murray gave the reply. Meanwhile, musical interludes were provided by fabulous Dumfries duo Fairfarren and 14-year-old Rose Byers.  Fiona Jessiman addressed the haggis, which was expertly piped in by 13-year-old Gregor Grierson.

Speakers at DGBP, Annual Burns Supper 2020. David Miller, Alec Ross, Shaun Bythell and Elaine Murray.
