Creelstock 5 reeled in the crowd the past Sunday in Catterline and raised over £1000 for the Archie Foundation.

The day of music and fun, all in the name of a good cause, is a fixture in Catterline’s event calendar taking place at the Creel Inn.

Organiser Joanne MacRae told us: “We are still awaiting confirmation of the final total with a few donations still to come in however at the moment the total is sitting at £1150.

“This was the fifth year we have held Creelstock at the Creel Inn in Catterline and many have said it was the best yet!

“It was touch and go with the weather but the sun shone for us and lots of people both local and from far and wide made the trip to come out, listen to some great music, eat good food and raise money for a fantastic cause.

“The Archie Foundation does vital work supporting children and families at Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and around the North of Scotland - it was a privilege to support such a worthy cause.”

The mini music festival starred Richard Hannay and the 39 Steps and The Disorganised Criminals, the bass player is founder of Creelstock - Keith MacRae.

There were also some new faces this year including local acts The Moonshiners and Rogues Gallery.
