Bearsden Fiddlers raise nearly £400

Bearsden Fiddlers staged their first free performance of the season in the walled garden at Mugdock Country Park last Sunday.

The concert raised £377 for Children 1st charity thanks to the generosity of the audience.

Val Bissland, whose daughter is the bodhran player, said: “This was the first time I’d been to see them perform and the music was great as well as the weather and the atmosphere.

“The players were cheered to know they had achieved their highest charitable collection in the five years they have been playing there.”
