FUND RAISING DINNER

CCG's biggest networking event is our annual fundraising dinner. Crookston Community Group gathered over 700 guests for a fun-filled, fantastic three meal course evening catered by SAFFRON at the 1st annual CCG Charity Dinner on Saturday, 1th November. The dinner is a vital way for CCG to raise funds. The evening's ticket sales combined with the auctioning of money-can't-buy prizes.
The proceeds from the dinner enables us to fund and develop our foodbank project in this year.
It was an incredibly successful Annual Dinner, which received some very positive feedback from both the table hosts and their guests.

The foodbank opened its doors just under a year ago and now provides food to around 500 people every week.
Councillor Shabbar Jaffri, who works with the group, was there to help distribute the eggs yesterday afternoon at the Crookston Community Group.
