Ferry helps Old Bag lunch hit new record
Guests raised £759,000, easily beating last year’s record £550,350. It was said that there were one or two big donations to take the tally to such a figure.
Attendees were entertained by former Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry and his band.
The guests included Judy Murray, mother of the tennis stars Andy and Jamie, and representatives of Scottish ballet.
The annual lunch has now raised more than £2.75m since it launched in 2009.
Guest performers in previous years have included Jason Donovan and the Three Degrees.
