Supporting the Fire and Rescue Service Family

Virtual concert coming up on the 30th Nov

The COVID 19 pandemic has presented a challenge for everyone, including all charities and the emergency services. We have felt the impact on our Charity’s finances as most of our events and fundraising opportunities have been cancelled, this year, including our annual St Andrew’s Ball, a highlight in our fundraising events calendar.

We recognise that music plays a big part in improving our health and well-being - whether it inspires us, comforts us, helps us exercise, or simply keeps us company. We look forward, with a sense of excitement, to being involved in our first ever virtual music gig, hearing new bands, well known artists, old favourites and a wide variety of music styles.

Dougie Boyd, Vice Chair, SFRS Family Support Trust

This Festival aims to cheer Scotland up, so the gig is free to watch but in return, they are asking the public to show their support for the frontline workers by making a small donation via their Just Giving page or via text on the day.
