Food Facts Friends Concert - 23 March 2018

Beeslck Jazz Band led by Graham McDonald
Over 60 people gathered in Penicuik Town Hall at 7.30pm on Friday 23 March to see and hear over two hours of entertaining music, song and dance from a fantastic line up of talented musicians, singers, and dancers.

The fund raising concert was introduced by Food Facts Friends foodbank and drop in centre founder Mark Wells. Penicuik’s very own Mose played master of ceremonies, introducing the acts and generally holding things together.

Good friend singer, guitarist and songwriter Megan Adams, a long standing Food Facts Friends supporter, came over from Stirling to play several numbers in both first and the second half of the show. Megan included her fantastic debut single ‘Travellin Soldier’ which you can see on YouTube.

Sophie Penman sang several songs with her guitar, followed by singing her own compositions while playing piano.

Song and music changed to dance as the Dancepointe Academy girls stepped out to entertain us with a dance number, followed by a solo tap dance. A quick change and they returned for another amazing display of synchronised dancing.

A coffee break provided time for the audience to catch their breadth and take part in the raffle, with lots of prizes on offer.

Fully Refreshed they were once again entertained by the Penicuik Beeslack Jazz Band. A very popular band at many functions, we were privileged to have them play a series of numbers for us.

Megan Adams returned to top off the evening with more of her favourite numbers including Hallelujah.

A big thank you to all the performers and all those who bought tickets and came along to enjoy the concert. All funds raised go to buy food and supplies for those in our community struggling to put a meal on the table for their families.

A special thanks to Stephen
and Wilma McCann of Forth Demolition who sponsor the foodbank monthly, adding donations on a regular basis, to whom we are extremely grateful.

The foodbank is open every Monday and Friday in St. Mungo’s church hall, with many volunteer helpers coming from the church congregation.
