A Lenzie-based charity has received a helping hand from the generous members and friends of Kirkintilloch Male Voice Choir.

The choir raised a total of £1,000 at their 93rd Annual concert - with all the proceeds going to Deafblind Scotland.

The money will go towards the organisation’s planned ‘Field of Dreams’ site, next to the new road at Woodilee.

Deafblind Scotland are now working towards raising the sum of £1.3 million.

This money will be required to build the centre where people with difficulties can experience life with no barriers and fully participate in activities.

Drena O’Malley from the charity, which is now in its 25th year, said: “This is truly a wonderful and generous gift from a very special group.

“It is donations like this which will bring us closer to our target, and closer to raising the funds needed.

“When built, the centre will change the lives of not only local people, but people throughout Scotland as well.

“With it being a charity based in the local area, residents can see first hand the difference it makes.

“It’s all about a dream, a local dream, and one we could see come true”

In the last 18 months alone, the choir raised in excess of £30,000 for charities such as Yorkhill Children’s Charity, Thomas Muir Festival, CHAS and Rotary.
