FOR THE first time in three years, the Ayrshire Association of Young Farmers Clubs' has held a grand charity night – and it was a ladies night, with some topless butlers in attendance. In total, there were 17 boys from clubs all over Ayrshire taking part, with four raffle ticket and shot sellers, and five boys on the bar – three of whom were past Ayrshire chairmen, the current Ayrshire chairman, Angus Erskine, and his vice chairman, James Gemmell.

Pictured here is the Ayrshire secretary, who organised the event, Laura Hamilton, and just a few of the butlers who were on offer for the evening, some of whom were slightly less dressed by the end of the night. A total of £160 was the maximum price paid on the evening, when Donald Erskine and Stewart Dunlop were both sold for this rate, while a few others also managed to reach more than £100, while the overall total raised was £3600. This will now be split equally between Women's Aid and Breast Cancer Care.

Speaking on the night, Miss Hamilton commented: "I would just like to thank all of the butlers for coming along and taking part this evening, and to all of the ladies for bidding for the them, and for donating towards such a great cause. I am delighted by the amount of money we managed to raise, and am looking forward to presenting £1800 to each charity!"
