The winner of a pair of tickets to the Spirit Aid comedy night at the 292 Club in Rothesay on Thursday, April 2 has been drawn.

All the entrants knew that Spirit Aid supporter Patrick Rolink, one of the four comedians who’ll be taking to the stage in Rothesay next week, is on the board of directors at Albion Rovers Football Club.

The winner is Harry Hattan of Mountpleasant Road in Rothesay. Well done to Harry, and thanks to everybody who entered!

There’s only a handful of unsold tickets still left for the event, which also features Ross Leslie, Graham Mackie and Carina MacLeod - so if you haven’t bought yours yet, get yourself along to Bute Tools, the Taverna Bar or the Port Inn ASAP. Tickets are priced £10, and the night is open to over-18s only.

Spirit Aid, which celebrated its tenth birthday last year, has had close links to Rothesay throughout the charity’s relatively short life: groups of islanders travelled to Malawi in 2008 and 2010 to help the organisation tackle the lack of food, clean water, education and training in the villages of Milonde and Muloza, while the charity’s founder, actor and director David Hayman, was chieftain of the 2010 Bute Highland Games.
