    CHARITY CONCERT Posted on 02 Mar 2020

    The Lanarkshire District Fellowship of the Boys’ Brigade staged a charity concert in Motherwell on Saturday evening in support of two local charities – Hope for Autism, North Lanarkshire, and YAMS (You Are My Sunshine). Assisted by voluntary performances from The Jolly B’s (Stonehouse), the renowned concert Organist Mark Hindley, as well as the Lanarkshire District Fellowship Pipes and Drums and the Wishaw and District Brigade Band, the Forward in Fellowship Concert was well received by a large and enthusiastic audience.

    The adjacent photograph shows the presentation of cheques to the value of £1350 to each of the two charities, with the promise of more to come. Well done LDF and the Boys’ Brigade in general, for displaying Faith in Action. The work of the kingdom was certainly advanced, with a focus beyond just “Boys.”

    The Church of Scotland Presbytery of Hamilton is a charity registered in Scotland No: SC048680.
