SIXTIES soul band Gaels Blue played their annual charity gig at Templehall Community Centre last month.

This year’s event was held in aid of Lupus Scotland, which supports people with systemic lupus and discoid lupus and assists those approaching diagnosis.

A total of £500 was raised for the charity.

Gill Green is pictured accepting the cheque on behalf of the charity from band members Tom Morgan, Graeme Henderson, John Stevenson, John Clark and Jon Gillon.

Gaels Blue who played regularly in the mid 60s, got together in 1999 for what was to be a one off reunion gig - this year was the 14th gig for the band.

Over the years, through their concerts, the band have raised over £8000 for various charities.

The band would like to thank their friends and family for their assistance in organising the gig, but most importantly they’d like to thank the fans who came in great numbers and had a great evening.

The audience enjoyed numbers including ‘Loving You is Sweeter Than Ever’, ‘Tears of a Clown’ and ‘Shout!’.
