QUEENSFERRY’S Ferry Fair festival received a welcome boost this week with a bumper cheque for £3000.

The money was raised from an auction and raffle at last year’s sixth annual Jim Liddell Memorial Dinner held in the Lodge. The event originated as a gentlemen’s dinner and was first organised as a Ferry Fair fundraiser by the late Jim Liddell, a long-standing supporter and committee member of the Ferry Fair. Following Jim’s death, a group of friends decided to continue the tradition and renamed the event in Jim’s memory. To date over £30,000 has been raised and shared between the Ferry Fair and a bursary scheme for local High School students. This year’s event on Friday, June 1, is already sold out.
