The final amount raised is not yet known, but Mr Lochore said the event, held last Friday, had been “a wonderful, unforgettable night”.

He added: “Thank you to everyone who came along to our first Shindigging For Gold event at La Tortilla Asesina.

“We had an immense amount of fun and raised a few pennies for Mikeysline and the Hive project.”

Another similar event is now being planned for the spring.
