BBC 1 TV COMIC RELIEF RED NOSE DAY – SUNSHINE ON LEITH

BBC 1 TV COMIC RELIEF RED NOSE DAY – SUNSHINE ON LEITH

Founder of the charity, Richard Curtis was inspired to use Sunshine on Leith in the broadcast to help in raising money for crucial things made ever worse by the pandemic – homelessness, domestic violence, hunger, mental health – while also acknowledging the joy and love we’re all capable of and the dreadful sorrow that so many people have been going through.

It’s a poignant and deeply moving 4-minute clip combining Sunshine on Leith with live footage from Edinburgh Castle (2019) from White Stag Films short movie ‘My Room on This Earth’  and T In The Park (2015). Mixed in are four fantastic choirs from Fochabers, South Queensferry, Leith and London merged with news clips from the past 12 months.

WHOLE LOTTA ROADIES- Album now available

The Fruit Tree Foundation is delighted to announce the creation of a brand-new unique album, ‘Whole Lotta Roadies’, put together by some of Scotland’s most loved musical artists and their crew. The project is the idea of Rod Jones of Idlewild, who saw first-hand the devastating effect the pandemic was having on all aspects of live shows, and in particular, those who rely on live events for a living, many now facing the prospect of an entire year of cancelled bookings.

As well as The Proclaimers performing Over and Done WIth, the line-up features, Belle and Sebastian, Mogwai, Twin Atlantic, Arab Strap, KT Tunstall, Fatherson, Emma Pollock, Honeyblood, Kathryn Joseph, The Rezillos, The Xcerts, and Idlewild.

New Bodies Gym – ‘I Would Lunge 500 Miles’ – Raising money for Manchester Children’s Hospital.

New Bodies Gym – ‘I Would Lunge 500 Miles’ – Raising money for Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Well done to Emma and Andrew Lomax and members of their Buxton gym for their super Christmas themed spirited and entertaining performances for a great cause.

The idea was inspired by the parents of two-year-old Molly Corthorn – who doctors gave a 30% chance of survival at birth. Molly was found to have fluid on the brain and a hernia causing pressure on her heart and lungs during her mums’ pregnancy.

The tot miraculously pulled through, parents Kimberly and Dan were told she may never walk and talk but now she is a happy chatty little girl, and she is now learning to walk with her frame.

Mum of 3 Emma said Molly spent her first Christmas at the hospital and staff made it so special for them. We just thought it would be nice to raise some money for other children spending this Christmas in hospital.
