NHS Shetland - Survey - March 2021

Voe variety fundraiser

A VARIETY concert to raise funds for a Glasgow hospital’s spinal unit will take place in the Voe Hall on Saturday night.

The concert has been organised by Karlyn Garrick and her family after her father spent several months in the spinal unit earlier this year.

She says: “In February, my dad was admitted to the spinal unit in Glasgow and was there for some months. He is now a patient in Ward 1 at the Gilbert Bain Hospital here in Lerwick and we hope he will get home before too long.

“This fundraiser is just a means of showing our appreciation and giving something back. The proceeds of the event will go towards buying items of equipment that will be beneficial to future patients in both hospitals.”

Karlyn said they were hoping for a good turnout with a line up including Alan & Callum Nicolson, Da Whalsa’ Weemin, KANSA, Nathan, Fraser & Darren, Tamar an’ Beenie and Väir. 

There will be a supper, bar facilities and a raffle, and tickets are available from Tagon Stores, John I Herculson, Brae Garage and High Level Music.
