Plans to refurbish palliative care facilities at the Victoria Hospital in Rothesay are set to receive a boost at an event in the town this Friday.

The Bute branch of Macmillan Cancer Support holds its annual cheese-and-wine fund-raiser at the 292 Club in Rothesay from 7pm to 9pm on February 19.

Tickets for the event cost £6, with all proceeds going towards the cost of improving services for local people suffering from serious illness through relieving the symptoms, pain and physical and mental stress of their condition.
