WEE COUNTY shoppers were treated to songs from the Great War as they helped raise hundreds of pounds for local veterans at the weekend.

Asda Alloa teamed up with Sauchie Community Group Choir with the 100th anniversary of the WWI Armistice around the corner to net vital cash for Wee County Veterans.

Some members of the choir donned uniforms from the time and brought to life old songs to delight shoppers and staff alike, who were both generous with their donations.

The event, on Saturday, November 4, raised a whopping £730 and will support the veterans’ group in organising its regular meetings that bring together all ranks of former armed forces personnel living in Clackmannanshire.

Paula Paton, community champion at Asda Alloa, had been working with the group in the past and the idea came as UK prepares to mark a century since the end of the first conflict that claimed millions of lives.

She said: “Asda are proud to support such a great organisation.

“The Wee County Veterans support all ranks of ex-armed forces in Clackmannanshire with having regular meetings to bring people together.”

Jo Wilkinson, of the veterans’ group, added: “Wee County Veterans would like to thank Asda for all the support and co-operation they have given us to support our fundraiser.

“And thank you to all customers and colleagues for any contributions that were made to our organisation.”
