The Ayrshire Hospice Summer Ball has raised an incredible amount of cash for the charity.

Held at Trump Turnberry on June 17, a total of £83,077 was raised which will go towards helping people in Ayrshire.

The annual Summer Ball serves as a vital fundraising initiative for the Ayrshire Hospice and the 2023 event exceeded all expectations, raising more than double the amount from the previous year.

Money will also go towards the development of the new hospice building in Ayr.

Guests heard from one of the inspirational families cared for by the hospice about the positive impact that the organisation’s care and services have for those across the region affected by any life-limiting illnesses.

Entertainment on the evening included the Maybole Pipe Band, Chris Hardie and fantastic dance performances from the Rennie Dance Academy, while local artist Elaine Johnston painted a masterpiece live during the auction.
