Picking up a bass guitar after almost 40 years proved a money spinner for John MacPherson from Alloa. He joined forces with a former band member to organise a fundraising gig at a local pub which raised £500 for the Urology Department at Forth Valley Royal Hospital and £500 for the charity Melanoma Me.
John’s donation was in appreciation of the “excellent care and treatment” he received from staff in the Urology Department. He is pictured handing over a cheque to Consultant Urologist Gavin Lang and some of the wider team.
John used to jam with band The Citreons in the 1960s. He says the recent fundraising event was so enjoyable there’s the chance of a repeat performance.
