We’d all like to say a big thanks to those who helped raise money at our annual fundraiser on 31st August:
- The Stand, for being great hosts and making the benefit possible
- Gus Lymburn for hosting the evening, along with the acts: Billy Kirkwood, Christopher MacArthur Boyd, Rhona McKenzie, Paul McDaniel
- Those who organised the night and made sure it ran smoothly
- Everyone who came along, bought a ticket and supported us!
The total amount raised was £949.20, so big thanks to everyone who helped out- especially Jim for doing the count!
Sunday 11 September – Freedom From Torture Charity Concert
Our friends Freedom From Torture have asked that we share this event, which looks great:
“Some members of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (Barry Deacon, Harold Harris, Kanako Ito and Gent Kocho) and two of their equally talented friends (Julia Lynch and David McCreadie) are generously giving their time and talent on behalf of the charity Freedom from Torture. They’ll be playing Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major and his Piano Quartet in G minor.
Sunday 11 September at Sherbrook St Gilbert Church, 240 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow G41 5AD. Doors open at 7.00, concert at 7.30. Entry by donation.
These are some of the best players in Scotland. It’ll be great! Please spread the word.”
Please see the flyer in the post about the concert for more information.
