Erne Parkin tribute night was a ”great success”


AN annual gig for the Suzy Fund in memory of popular local musician Erne Parkin raised £630.

The band the Banditos played at the concert in Milngavie’s Fraser Centre.

Erne worked tirelessly to promote music and the performing arts before his sudden death in July 2009.

He was famous for his events, including Mugdock Music Festival, and parties – especially his new year get-together.

The Suzy Fund – Erne’s favourite charity – helps to feed children in Africa.

John McNamara, who helped organise the event, thanked everyone who attended the evening and made it such a success, including Erne’s widow Dorothy.

He said: “It was a great team effort. Thanks again.”
