A support group in Fraserburgh put on a special concert recently.
People First Fraserburgh were delighted to receive funding from “Aberdeenshire Celebrates” to put on a concert for the family and friends of People First members as a way of thanking the many who have helped and encouraged the group to develop their music project, Lighthouse Rock.
Lighthouse Rock is a music project that gives people with learning difficulties in the Fraserburgh area the chance to learn to make music.
The project is based at the new People First drop-in at 57 Cross Street, in what used to be the old Cycling World premises.
The concert was held on Thursday, February 21 at Cross Street, and was the first time the group had attempted a public concert or indeed any kind of evening event.
The group were delighted that “Step Up”, a young people’s community dance group were able to join in for the evening.
In total, approximately 40 family and friends attended the event. People First were especially pleased that so many members of Enable gave up their usual Thursday evening club to come to the event.
Organisers said that a good time was had by all and that everyone enjoyed the singing, the dancing and the drumming.
The organisers of Lighthouse Rock would also like to thank all those who supported the project by coming along to their Music Quiz the following week. A total of £180 was raised, which will go towards ensuring that Lighthouse Rock is able to continue next year.
Lighthouse Rock in concert was funded by Aberdeenshire Celebrates, a partnership between Aberdeenshire Council and Voluntary Arts Scotland.
