SHOPPERS in Asda Alloa were treated to a fantastic performance by the Wee County Veterans last weekend.

The veterans, and their associated choir Scatoosh, set up shop in Asda to entertain visitors as they shopped, raising money for their charity in the process.

Scatoosh came fully prepared, serenading guests with their pianist and guitarist in full swing as they entered the store.

Keira Lang, community champion at Asda Alloa, said: “The customers were enjoying it, the staff loved it, everybody was in high emotions.

“It was a really good day and they phoned me this morning to say they had raised over £200 for the Wee County Veterans.

“It was a brilliant day for everybody who came in.”

Donations made to the Wee County Veterans help them prepare food parcels for people around Clacks.

If no food parcels are needing to be made out, the money is distributed towards running costs for the charity, who provide a vital service to veterans in the Wee County.

Jo Wilkinson, co-ordinator for Wee County Veterans, said it was a delight to see Scatoosh perform for the Asda customers.

She said: “It was absolutely fantastic. We were doing a fundraiser for the Veterans and Scatoosh, who come from Sauchie Community Group, did us a favour by singing there.

“They sang for well over two hours and we made £263.08 and it was great.

“That’s a lot of money for us – especially since we have only been a charity for a year.

“The Wee County Veterans thank Asda and their community champion Keira for all their support and help.

“Asda have been absolutely wonderful to us.”

The Wee County Veterans work closely with partner organisations Legion Scotland and Soldiers, Sailors, Air Force Families Association (SSAFA), Poppy Scotland, the Armed Services Advice Scotland and the Defence Medical Welfare Service.

The charity is happy to provide support or signposting to any veterans who find themselves needing help.
