A couple of weeks ago Duchess Kay Hamilton gave us 3 tickets to an evening with George Hamilton IV. The tickets only became available at the last minute so we created a very quick competition and gave them away.

The competition was won by Louise Mercer.

Louise also told us what see thought of the evening, which included dinner at the Cardrona Hotel near Peebles:

I was so pleased to win these tickets donated by the Duchess of Hamilton but even more pleased to see that Kay, The Dowager Duchess of Hamilton had decided to come along as well. Such a lovely genuine lady. George Hamilton IV is really just the “lovely guy next door” and has a bit of a sideline as a stand up comic!

George and of course Kathy Stewart and the Frequent Flyers kept us entertained all night. The food was also fantastic and the service was a credit to the MacDonald Cardrona Hotel.

A special mention to Big Al Rae who can REALLY play a guitar..his solo’s were amazing!

Kay also got in touch. She said that she had donated the tickets because she couldn’t make it to the evening. This all changed at the last minute and she did get along after all. She asked us to thank everyone for a wonderful night.
