Local flood victims have been given a boost after a variety concert in Inverurie raised £7000.

The town hall was packed on Friday night with 450 people anxious to do their bit to help neighbours and friends who had been affected by the recent flooding.

The concert was organised by the Inverurie Rotary Glee Club and organisers were delighted by the success of the event.

After a welcome from Aberdeenshire Provost Hamish Vernal, music came from Celticad, the Inverurie Academy Music Group, the Garioch Young Fiddlers, Robert Lovie and Raymond Jappy, the Ruby Rendall Band, Inverurie Choral Society, Ian Milne and Athol Smith, the Stuart Anderson Band and the Glee Club themselves.

The various acts were seamlessly linked together by MC Mark Stephen.

In addition to Inverurie Rotarians, willing help was provided by the Lions Club, the Round Table and Kintore Rotary Club.

At the conclusion of what many in the audience said was the best concert they had been to in years, Glee Clubber Jim McColl thanked all those who had participated in or supported the event and announced that £6704 had been raised and would go to helping local flood victims.

The concert ended with an anonymous donor rounding the evening’s fundraising figure up to £7000.
