DJ Party's record

Published: 25 January 2016

The 2015 DJ's Christmas Party, organised by Derek Johnston from Estates and Buildings, raised a record sum for charity.

The University of Glasgow staff annual fixture known as DJ's Christmas Party goes from strength to strength.

Organised by Derek Johnston, a Maintenance Services Supervisor with Estates and Buildings, the event has been running for several years. A highlight of the party is always a guest appearance by 'stars of the 70s', together with a disco, karaoke, raffle and buffet. (Some of the stars of the 70s appear to bear an uncanny resemblance to Derek himself!)

This year the party raised an incredible £4310.00 - the biggest single amount raised from any of the parties in their four-year history. The 2015 look-alike stars included Showaddywaddy and the Bay City Rollers.
