Largs Academy Wellbeing Initiative Fundraiser


Yesterday, Sunday 21 November, a series of nine local bands and acoustic musicians played at Room Bar and Restaurant from 2pm-10pm to help raise funds for the Largs Academy Wellbeing Initiative.

Bands included Emberfall (pictured) Chris Greig and the Merchants and The Wait.

Kenneth Gibson MSP said:

“Yesterday was a really busy day. Working in my constituency office in the morning, delivering independence newspapers for most of the afternoon and participating in Garnock Valley SNP branch meeting in the evening I really enjoyed the couple of hours listening to some really pulsating music at the fundraiser late afternoon/early evening.

“The atmosphere in Room was terrific and the sounds were excellent. Importantly it was for a really good cause.

“The Largs Academy student wellbeing initiative aims to support pupils who may be experiencing issues with their mental health and wellbeing. It's a hugely important local resource which needs and deserves backing and the people of Largs did indeed respond by coming out in numbers.

“It was also good to catch up with loads of folk, such as Suzanne Fairlie, whose late husband was a member of Emberfall and whose son Derek and niece Sarah, both talented musicians, were performing.

“Suzanne worked hard all day raising and collecting money for this important local cause.”
