Media Release: ‘Safe cracker’ wins precious iPad

IF you want to get your hands on the new iPad before the rest of Scotland, join bidders at Epilepsy Scotland’s Glasgow Wags dinner in the Marriott Hotel, Argyle Street on Thursday 29 April at 7pm.

One lucky person will buy a £10 safe key that opens the door to an exclusive iPad worth around £500.

Chief executive, Lesslie Young, is delighted that Clicknetworks, an East Kilbride-based IT firm, has donated this unique prize to help raise funds for the charity.

She said: “It is going to be a fun-filled fundraising night for our 300 guests. I am grateful and encouraged by the generosity of people, even with the recession. Many fortunate winners will go home with fine prizes but only one can unlock a ‘must-have’ iPad.”

Celebrities giving their time to take part in the Glasgow Wags Strictly Speaking event include BBC comedy writer and actor Sanjeev Kohli, Radio Clyde news presenter Lorraine Herbison and ex-Rangers player Kevin Drinkell.
