Ayrshire's Rock Choir joined forces with colleagues in Glasgow last week to raise a whopping £2,009 for the Beatson Cancer Charity.

The two choirs performed at the Silverburn Shopping Centre, with the hour-long set full of uplifting pop and rock songs.

Passers-by and shoppers were wowed with their electric performance and their hard work paid off when they discovered they had raised thousands of pounds for Beatson Cancer Charity, which exists to enhance the experience, treatment and outcomes and wellbeing of all current and former patients.

Rock Choir Leader Lauren McGarrigle said: “It was so lovely to combine the Glasgow and Ayrshire choirs together to raise for such a good cause, at Silverburn.

"The Beatson Cancer Charity is one that has touched so many people's hearts with their support through such tough times, with myself and many of my choir members having family members who have used their services.

"To raise such a large amount in just one hour of singing all in is incredible and we are so happy and proud to be able to contribute and support what they do through song and doing what we do best.”

Rock Choir was the first contemporary choir of its kind offering an accessible and inclusive experience for amateur singers and has now become a household name.

With over 33,000 members in over 400 local communities, it offers an alternative experience to the traditional classical or community choir, with its uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit being a huge part of attraction.

At an individual level, it helps improve people's well-being by building their self-confidence and self-esteem.
