THE Venue at the Garioch Sports Centre was the place to be last Friday night (November 15), as local band “Four Way Street” performed to raise money for UCAN.
Band members, David Hannah, Norman Gillanders, James Allan, Calum Trail and Roy Calder had a ball playing a mix of classic rock and pop to a great crowd of over 250 who hardly missed a dance the whole night.
The evening started with the very talented Stuart Hossick giving a solo performance in his own inimitable style followed by a three-hour set by Four Way Street.
The band had hoped to raise some money for UCAN after one of the their members was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012. To say a massive thank you to the professional staff at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, the band decided to hold a charity gig and raffle to not only raise awareness of the disease but to help UCAN get the necessary funds to buy a robotic arm that aids surgery and reduces operating times down to two hours.
The band hope to hand over a cheque to UCAN in the coming weeks and cannot thank all the people enough who came to give their support and donated fantastic prizes for the raffle.
UCAN was set up as a charity dedicated to raising awareness of urological cancers, and improving support and quality of life for people and families who are affected.
It plans to do this by creating a centre of excellence in the North of Scotland.
