Charity CD benefits organisations

Catterline singer/songwriter Dave Ramsay handed over three cheques for £250 each, to three local community groups at a special event at Forest View Centre, in Stonehaven, on Monday.

A major fund raising live concert and recording took place at the Clatterin’ Brig Restaurant in April and the local heritage double CD, “Tales o’ the Clatterin’ Brig and Drumtochty Glen” was launched to a panel of distinguished guests, and an invited audience. The album features a wide range of local musician and artistes, with a strong local heritage focus.

Beneficiaries of this fund raising initiative, were the Forest View Centre, Jubilee House Stonehaven, a respite and holiday facility for people with disabilities and their families, and Auchenblae School, where the pupils wrote and recorded five heritage songs for the album.

The three groups were gifted 100 CDs for their own fund raising purposes, sales of which would enable the groups to raise £1,000 each.

The £750 came from a highly successful additional sales promotion.

Dave said, “This has been a very successful fund raising initiative, and it is particularly pleasing to see the funds accumulating so quickly due to the rapid sales of the CD.”
