A GROUP of Raith Rovers supporters are about to put their money where their mouth is - as they sing to raise cash for charity.

The group are set to make a recording of Kirkcaldy anthem Geordie Munro to raise funds for Kirkcaldy’s Children’s Ward and CHAS, and are roping in as many good-willed celebrities and musicians as they can to sing along to the well known tune.

The song is then set to be put on CD and sold to raise money for the two charities, as well as for the club.

Gavin Quinn, one of the organisers, said: “We are hoping to involve as many people as possible in the recording - players past and present, some celebrities, fans and lots of local musicians.

“We wanted a new way to raise money for charity and thought the song could do with a new lease of life.

“We’ve already got lots of local musicians involved, including Dennis Alexander and some of the members of Kirkcaldy Pipe Band.

“Since we got the word out there have been lots more come forward, and there’s even a samba band looking to get involved. We are just hoping that it helps to raise funds, and it’s good fun too.”

The diverse group of singers and musicians who are taking part in the project began recording this week, and Gavin hopes to involve more people as it begins to piece together, with talks of getting some big names in on the act too.
