A ceilidh in tribute of a tragic Wester Ross student is to take place this Friday with performances from the students of Plockton Music School.
Bethany Walker died in January after contracting flu which later developed into bacterial pneumonia and sepsis.
She was 18 years old and had not long returned from a year of travelling, mainly around eastern Europe. She had planned to study midwifery at Aberdeen University later this year.
Whilst a pupil at Plockton High School Bethany stayed in the Pupil Residence and developed great friendships with the pupils of Plockton Music School.
The Pupil Residence and Music school will now come together in partnership to host the evening in memory of their dear friend.
Bethany’s mother Heather Teale said: “We are going to be fundraising for the UK Sepsis trust – well for the rest of our lives – and it’s great that the school have jumped on that.
“It’s a difficult time. I have been blown away by the kindness of the teenagers and the teachers.”
The event will take place in the Dornie Hall on Friday April 20 from 8pm through to midnight and all proceeds from the event will be donated to the UK Sepsis Trust.
Pupils from Plockton Music School will perform alongside the Young Tradition Touring Group from Vermont, USA.
Tickets are £10 each and can be purchased at Balmacara Stores, by calling Plockton Music School on 01599 544706 in advance or on the door on the night.
Food is included and there will be a licensed bar. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
