Organisers of the prestigious Touch of Tartan Ball in aid of CHILDREN 1ST have released extra tickets after the first round sold out in record time.

Following the sale of the first 450 tickets, limited ‘gold-dust’ ones have been released.

These are expected to be snapped up quickly for the ball which takes place at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom on Friday, November 21.

Attending the event gives people the chance to bid in an auction of luxury items including the painting ‘Moonlight Sonata’ by leading Scottish artist John Byrne. This lot has been generously sponsored by the Rendezvous Gallery on Forest Avenue in Aberdeen where the painting is on display until the day of the ball.

The event will also host the draw for the famous Banchory Bangle, designed by Royal jeweller Dr Malcolm Appleby.

Dr Appleby has been making a Banchory Bangle every year since 1976.

Kate Smith, director of Fundraising for CHILDREN 1ST, said: “As the RSSPCC, and now as CHILDREN 1ST, we have always put children and young people at the centre of everything we do.

‘‘This event shows, time and again, that the people of the North-east share our aspiration that the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure childhood for every child and young person in Scotland.”

Tickets to win the bangle are available in books of 10 and cost £10 per book. They are on sale at the Wee Boorachie in Banchory, where the bangles are currently on display.
