A CHORAL Concert was held to raise funds for Dementia Friendly Prestwick.

Over 50 people attended the event on Friday, October 27 at St Ninian’s Scottish Episcopal Church in Prestwick and a grand total of £370 was raised for the group.

Councillor Hugh Hunter, who was in attendance, said: “The night went really well. We had over 50 people and they donated £370 which is fantastic, and we are very grateful.

“It was a wonderful concert and the soloist, Christina Whyte, was outstanding. 

“She came all the way over from Dublin especially for the concert.

“We are so grateful to the choir and for Dementia Friendly Prestwick to be the recipient of the donations.”
