A fundraising and comedy night is being held in Alford this Saturday (June 4) in support of a wildcat conservation project.

All proceeds from the Highland Tiger Fling in Tullynessle and Forbes Hall will go to Scottish Wildcat Action.

The event is being organised by local woman and cat lover Maureen Laverman, who arranged similar fundraising events in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

She started raising money in 2009 after hearing of the wildcats’ demise and following a meeting with Dr David Hetherington, who was heading the ‘Highland Tiger’ project.

Entertainment will be provided by comedian Patrice MacPherson and DJ Doug Duggan and the evening, which gets under way at 7.30, will also feature a live auction, raffle and bottle tombola.

Tickets are £10 each. Call 01975 563805.
