    That was an absolutely amazing evening, with the best ever rendition of Tam O’Shanter, I really could not fault one thing from the evening. Brilliant night, brilliant atmosphere, amazing fundraising event. I was sat with Blair Jenkins and he is so down to earth, onwards and upwards for the campaign and a YES vote on 18th September
