A HERMITAGE Academy pupil is organising a family ceilidh night in Helensburgh to raise funds for a trip to Zambia later this year.

Rosie Sumsion will be part of a group from the Academy travelling to the country in June to help promote reading in rural communities.

The fund-raising event takes place in the Osprey Suite of the Commodore Inn on Saturday, March 7, with live music provided by the Lomond Ceilidh Band.

The doors open at 7pm with dancing beginning at 7.30pm.
