KIRKINTILLOCH Ladies Choir is proud to announce that its next concert – entitled “Stage and Screen” – will be in support of their chosen charity, the Emma Cameron Foundation.

Brave Emma, who attended Torrance Primary School, lost her fight against cancer aged just 11-years-old.

During her final weeks at home the family discovered that no nightly sit-in service was available for children, although it was available for adults with terminal illness.

The foundation was set up and very quickly achieved within six months what they had realistically aimed to achieve in three years.

As well as supporting other children’s charities, the main aim is to provide a nightly sit-in service.

At present it covers the West of Scotland, but the Torrance charity are hoping to roll it out to the whole country.

The choir’s concert takes place on Saturday, April 20, at 7.30pm in St David’s Memorial Park Church, Kirkintilloch. Tickets cost £5 each and are available from choir members or pay at the door.

Special guests The Westertones will also perform. The concert will be led by conductor Bryan Marshall and accompanied by pianist Maryam Sherhan.

As the name suggests, the programme for the evening consists of many well-known and loved songs from films and the shows.

A choir spokesperson said: “There will be something for everyone and audience members will go home with catchy songs ringing in their heads.

“We hope to fill the church and in doing so help to raise much-needed funds for a very worthwhile cause. Please come along and support us and the Emma Cameron Foundation.”
