A whole host of Lanarkshire businesses, including CMS Window Systems, have played their part in raising £30,000 for the Lanarkshire Beatson, as part of a charity gala dinner.

The money raised for the major, new cancer treatment centre, in memory of Lanarkshire businessman Owen Barrett, is sure to make a significant difference to those affected by cancer in Lanarkshire.

Activities that took place included the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of fantastic prizes, including original pieces of art by leading Scottish contemporary artists, plus a whole host of holiday packages and event tickets.

These occurred in a live auction, hosted by comedian and presenter, Des Clarke.
