Cairns Church concert for Guide Dogs

A special fundraising concert is being held in Cairns Church, Milngavie, on Saturday, May 30, in support of Guide Dogs Scotland.

Songs from the shows and light classical repertoire will be presented by “Like a Singing Bird”, a group of singers formed over 10 years ago, featuring amongst others, local performer Jonathan Hawkins.

To date the group has raised over £35,000 for various charities and this time they hope to raise enough to fund naming a puppy for Guide Dogs, asking the audience to help choose a name on the evening.

Katharine Tornow, a member of the singing group, knows very well how a guide dog supports a blind or partially sighted person to live an independent life because her brother Michael is a guide dog owner.

The concert in Cairns Church starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 (including refreshments) and are available from Cairns Church Office, 0141 956 4868, and Haydock Music, Stewart Street, Milngavie, 0141 956 1812.
