Fundraiser for refugee group
Gargunnock Community Centre is the location for a musical fundraising evening for Stirling Citizens for Sanctuary (SCfS) this Friday, November 17.
It is the first of the‘Support Acts’ music nights to raise funds for the organisation which supports Syrian refugee families who are settling in the Stirling and Clackmannanshire area.
The evening organised by SCfS features a number of acts including Glasgow band Dear Green Blue who will play blues covers and rock and pop band Gunnistic.
Karen Helwig of SCfS said:“Music is something that can connect people from around the world and we hope people will turn out in great numbers for what should be a great night out for an important cause.
“We hope to organise more music events under the banner‘Support Acts’in the future so ask people to keep an eye out for details.”
Some of the most vulnerable Syrian refugee families have been selected by the UK Government to settle in the Stirling and Clackmannashire area under its resettlement scheme.
There are now four families in the Stirlingshire area and 17 in Clackmannanshire.
SCfS helps them with befriending, organising outings, supporting learning English and supplying some material needs.
