On Saturday 7th April, we will be taking guests back to the decade of the Rubik’s cube, Ronald Regan, R.E.M and Back to the Future with its 80’s Themed Night, being jointly organised by local Malcolm Parry and ourselves to raise vital funds for the charity ‘Scottish Association for Mental Health’ (SAMH).
For only £10pp, the evening will start at 19:30 with a quiz followed by a buffet and then disco – all in the theme of the decade of decadence! And with all proceeds going to SAMH charity, a very worthwhile organisation that helps people across Scotland with better mental health and well-being.
Graham Blaikie, owner of the Mercat Grill said: “I was approached by my friend Malcolm (also known as ‘Wee Running Man’) who told me he’s raising money for SAMH by running the John Muir Way Ultra Marathon on 31 March, a long way at 50k! We thought together we could also organise another fundraiser event with our 80’s Themed Night, less energetic but a great fun evening, with food, entertainment and good company all in the mix! We hope to raise as much money as possible and awareness of mental health so please do come along with family and friends and feel free to dress up, if you wish!”
Malcolm Parry, from Whitecraig added: “I run because it helps my mental state and all-round well-being and I am very fortunate that I can do so. In return, I decided I wanted to give something back. I have friends and family who battle with mental health conditions. A friend who was close to me, some days couldn’t find a reason to leave his room and hold down a job. He had a dark cloud above him and couldn’t see the point in life. It’s time we all recognized that these are serious issues that we need to understand and help with, so please help me by donating to this wonderful charity by contributing to my run and/or coming along to our 80’s Themed Night.”
