There are only three tables left for people who still want to go along to the first big fundraising dinner in Bearsden for Funding Neuro, which raises money for research into Parkinson’s Disease.

The charity was set up by Bearsden man Bryn Williams after he was diagnosed with the condition in 2007, at the age of 36.

The married dad-of-two firstly established the Wobbly Williams website and blog then started the charity, Funding Neuro, to support research into a possible cure for Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders.

And now he is one of 30 patients taking part in a scientific trial being conducted by neurosurgeon Professor Steven Gill, based at Bristol’s Frenchay Hospital.

The research aims to find out the effect of delivering the protein Glial Cell Line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor directly into the brain through tubes.

The ‘Saturday Night Live’ event is going to be held in Bearsden Burgh Hall on Saturday, November 22 at 6.30pm for 7pm. The headline band are Les Rusty Scruffs from Glasgow, which has one member from Bearsden.

Guests will be treated to a red carpet reception with a glass of bubbly, a four course dinner, musical theatre, quizzes, wacky races (fun races that they have filmed and the audience bets on the result) a charity auction, raffle and dancing.

Organiser Alan Oliver said: “There’s only two weeks to go!

“This is such a fantastic cause and it’s going to be a really great night - like no other you have ever been to!”

Tickets are £35 each and can be purchased in batches of four or more or take a complete round table of 10 (£350). Email Alan Oliver (
