Drumming up some festive cheer for Cash for Kids

The Charity Auctioneers were centre stage at a recent Westsound Cash For Kids fundraising event in Ayrshire.

Willie led the bidding after lunch at Ayr Race Course in aid of the station’s Christmas Mission.

When the bidding closed more than £27,000 had been raised to help local disadvantaged kids enjoy a better festive season.

Cash for Kids is a UK charity that responds to the needs of children in local communities to help them live life to the full and realise their individual potential. Supported by Baur Media Group radio stations across 21 locations, they work with children up to eighteen years who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect.

“Cash for Kids raises a great deal of much needed funds through using the services of Willie Paterson every year at our annual Westsound Cash for Kids Christmas Lunch. Willie’s energy and enthusiasm knows no bounds as he strives to raise the most he can for children who need the most help in Ayrshire at this special time of the year,”

said Cash For Kids charity manager, Lynne Bennett.

This is the eighth year Willie’s talents have been called on to help raise much needed funds.
