Boclair House Hotel’s birthday bash raises £4000 for charity

BOCLAIR House Hotel in Glasgow’s Bearsden has celebrated its first birthday – and raised £4000 for charity in the process.

The Manorview team.

The hotel, owned and operated by Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group, held a Great Gatsby-themed party, with funds raised going to the hotel’s chosen charity, Glasgow-based Cure Crohn’s Colitis.

Attendees dressed up in 1920s attire for the event, where they sat down to a three-course meal, with music on the night provided by the Smooth Jazz Duo, as well as dance lessons offered by The Glasgow Lindy Hoppers.

Money was raised through an auction, as well as raffle prizes; 20% of ticket sales were also donated towards the charity, raising a total of £4000.

Cure Crohn’s Colitis raises money to help fund research into debilitating inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease; there’s no cure for either disease, and Scotland is said to have one of the highest rates of IBD in the world.

Craig Haddow, general manager at Boclair House Hotel, commented that “all our guests made a spectacular effort to get into the Great Gatsby theme”.

“We’re delighted to support the Cure Crohn’s Colitis charity and to raise much needed funds for their vital research into these debilitating diseases,” said Haddow.
