Band are on song

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

It was a case of all that glit­ters is gold for shop­pers at Asda To­ry­glen re­cently.

They were treated to an ex­clu­sive per­for­mance from Castlemilk mu­sic group All That Glit­ters to cel­e­brate the launch of the su­per­mar­ket’s new Tick­led Pink fundrais­ing cam­paign.

Per­form­ing a se­lec­tion of orig­i­nal songs, the creative writ­ing group wrote “Robin’s Mes­sage” es­pe­cially for the day, which aimed to raise vi­tal funds for Asda’s af­fil­i­ated char­i­ties, Breast Can­cer Care and Breast Can­cer Now.

In­spired by the small bird, the song high­lights the robin as a sym­bol of hope with the mes­sage not to give up dur­ing hard times.

The group, who are part of the Ar­den­glen Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion per­sonal ca­pac­ity pro­gramme The Only Way is Up, based in the Mau­reen Cope Com­mu­nity Hall, were hon­oured to make their de­but at the Asda store.

All That Glit­ters, said: “We were de­lighted to per­form sev­eral orig­i­nal songs at Asda To­ry­glen over the week­end in cel­e­bra­tion of Tick­led Pink. Singing Robin’s Mes­sage for the first time was a very spe­cial mo­ment and well re­ceived by cus­tomers. We’d like to thank El­iz­a­beth Ar­buckle for al­low­ing us this op­por­tu­nity to sup­port such a wor­thy cause.”

Asda To­ry­glen Com­mu­nity Cham­pion, El­iz­a­beth Ar­buckle, is lead­ing the store’s fundrais­ing this month.

She said: “We were thrilled to wel­come All That Glit­ters to Asda To­ry­glen. Their per­for­mance was the per­fect start to this year’s Tick­led Pink cam­paign.

“From the group’s stand­out per­for­mance to in-store tombola’s, col­leagues will be busy rais­ing funds for the char­i­ties sup­ported through Tick­led Pink to help fund much needed sup­port for those af­fected by the dis­ease, as well as vi­tal re­search.

“At Asda To­ry­glen, we will be proud to be pink!”
