SOME cool cats and a 1959 Ford Skyliner Galaxy went to the hop at St Margaret of Scotland Hospice recently to promote its forthcoming event - Dance Through The Decades.

Dusting off their 1950s gear and sliding down for some jive, swing and rock n roll, a group of hospice supporters got themselves ready to dance to the sound of the 11 piece Craig McMurdo dance orchestra at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow on Saturday, June 30.

Sister Rita, chief executive of St Margaret’s Hospice, said: “There will be expert dancers on the night to give a demonstration and remind us of the moves.

“Then we get the chance to see how good our memories of 1950s music are with a game of ‘Hit or Miss’.

“There will be a fabulous buffet meal with wine. It’s hip to be square so come along and relive this fabulous era.”

St Margaret’s Hospice in Clydebank, the first and largest hospice in Scotland, has offered compassion, dedicated commitment and excellent care to patients with advanced life-limiting illnesses and also to the older person with complex medical and nursing needs for 62 years.

It is a 60 bed unit offering a wide range of facilities to the local and wider community including Edwina Bradley day hospice, in-patient and out-patient facilities, home care and counselling services.

Doors open at 7pm for Dance Through The Decades and tickets cost £40 each.
