The Graan Draw: This is the last weekend to buy tickets for the Car Draw. The Draw will take place at the Dinner Dance in the Killyhevlin Hotel next Friday night at mid-night. There will be £14,000 (approx) in prizes this year. If you would like to sell a book of tickets for us, please do; we really do appreciate your help. If you have any tickets in your homes please return them at the beginning of this week. Please leave them in early in the week because it is difficult to do it all in the last day or two. All our helpers do this voluntarily. So please help us by returning counterfoils and money ASAP.


At the Dinner Dance Gerry Guthrie and his band are our entertainment for the night. The Dinner Dance tickets cost £35.00 each and are available at reception. If you are coming to the Dinner Dance, we promise to run things on time. You’ll need to be at the hotel not later than 8pm. You can choose your seating then. The dinner will be served before 8.30pm.

Raffle & Spot Prizes: Sincere thanks to those who have already given very valuable prizes for the night. Contact us if you have a Raffle & Spot Prize and we will collect it or better still if you can leave it in at the front door of the Monastery with your name on it, we will be most grateful. Every single Spot Prize will be given away on the night.
