Talented singers and musicians have raised thousands for charity after packing out one of Glasgow’s largest venues for the 11th straight year.

The Springfield Cambridge Festival Chorus and Orchestra, made up of talented musicians and singers from Bishopbriggs and beyond, held their annual Christmas concert at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Monday, December 23.

Entitled ‘Light and Love’, the festive extravaganza sold out the main 2,500-seat auditorium.

The successful event raised a huge amount of festive cheer, as well as a massive £27,870 for children’s charity
CHAS.

It means that the concerts over the years have now raised more than £188,000 for CHAS since the first one took place 12 years ago.

Chairman Mike Walker, who has sung in the chorus since its inception in 2001, said: “It’s really quite incredible to be able to take part in such an event and work with so many talented people.”

And he was glowing about the part played by Musical Director Alan A. Craig, who conducts the annual concert.

He said: “Alan’s enthusiasm, charisma and work makes the whole thing happen each year.”

The latest bumper cheque was presented to Debbie Mooney recently at the group’s presentation dinner at Bishopbriggs Golf Club.
