    Tuathal Breheny won the 18 plate car — which was donated by Arnold Clark — after purchasing a raffle ticket in support of the event that benefits a trio of local charities. The black tie ball, which took place at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow, was attended by more than 340 guests.

    Finding your Feet, A&M Scotland and SAMs were all chosen by the organising committee of the St Patrick’s Day Charity Ball to benefit from funds raised, which totalled £56,000.Breheny collected his new vehicle from Arnold Clark’s Hillington headquarters and met Eddie Hawthorne, chief executive and group managing director of Arnold Clark, as well as the St Patrick’s Day Charity Ball organising committee.

    “The event has enjoyed its 16th anniversary this year and has raised significant sums for our chosen charities,” Kevin Maguire, chairman of the St Patrick’s Day Charity Ball Committee, said.

    “We could not achieve this without the hugely generous donation of a Renault Clio from Arnold Clark. We cannot thank them enough for their continued commitment to our annual event and the charitable ethos that surrounds the company.”

    And Eddie Hawthorne was keen to add his support to the charity fundraising achieved by the ball.

    “We have been supporting this event for a number of years and I am always impressed by the hard work of the committee and the amount of funds raised from the selling of the raffle tickets to win the car,” the Arnold Clark boss explained.

    “At Arnold Clark we are really proud to be able to help local causes and I am delighted that the three charities involved this year will be receiving a substantial amount of financial support from the event.”
