Generous donors have raised £75,000 at a charity ball to support a charity for disabled people.

The glamorous event, organised by Sense Scotland in Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, attracted more than 300 guests with £75,000 raised on the night.  

Entertainment was on tap from Elvis tribute act Johnny Lee Memphis and Big Vern ‘n’ the Shootahs with Edward Reid hosting the proceedings.

Speaking at the event was Gary Chatham whose son Theo is the focus of Sense Scotland’s 2023 Christmas Appeal and first-ever TV advert.

Theo, who is two years old and has brain damage and cerebral visual impairment, has never left the hospital since being born. It wasn’t until Gary and his wife Sarah were introduced to Sense Scotland’s Early Years team that Theo began to thrive.

Sense Scotland is a Glasgow-based specialised social care provider supporting people with communication support needs associated with complex and sensory disabilities, and their families.
