A Bearsden church is hosting a Christmas concert in a bid to raise funds which will protect children around the world who are at risk of being trafficked.

Charity Tearfund Scotland hopes that many residents from across the town will get behind the event and help make a difference in tackling what is now the fastest-growing criminal industry world-wide.

The concert, which takes place in Baljaffray Parish Church on Friday, December 4, will feature live music, Christmas songs, and an opportunity to hear more about Tearfund’s anti-trafficking work.

Tearfund Scotland Director Lynne Paterson hopes many Bearsden residents will come along to show their support and find out more.

She said: “Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, a child is trafficked. That works out as more than one million children every year. Tearfund has been working to help some of the poorest families in the world who are often prime targets for traffickers looking to take advantage.
