Local musicians from Newton Stewart and the Machars raised a whopping £1156.10 for the Nepal earthquake appeal by putting on a concert in the Cree Inn last Friday night and also through a street collection in Newton Stewart earlier in the day.

Organiser Billy Jones told The Galloway Gazette: “The generosity of the people of this area has been wonderful - as usual. We would also like to thank the many people who gave their services for free.”

This is the third concert that the talented group have put on to raise funds to help those affected by natural disasters around the world.
