Rothesay Academy pupil and singer, Beth Swan, has raised a whopping £2,360 for the Moira Anderson Foundation.

Fourteen-year-old Beth raised the funds through a Cabaret Night held in Cumbernauld Town Hall, and from the proceeds of her charity single, ‘Soar’.

Beth is no stranger to the island’s music scene, having performed at Tee in the Port, the Port Bannatyne Gala Day, ButeFest 2015, in addition to countless performances on Rothesay Academy’s stage at talent competitions.

More recently she performed at Transclyde Music’s latest gig in Craigmore Bowling Club last month, as support for singer-songwriter Ewan MacLennan.

Beth told us: “I know just what this will mean to the foundation, and how it will help so many people. Although it is based in Airdrie it is a nationwide charity and is there for anyone who needs their help and support.

“I am delighted and so grateful to everyone who supported this event and bought the single, it was an awesome night.”

The Moira Anderson Foundation is a national charity dedicated to supporting those affected by childhood sexual abuse. It supports both children and adults of both genders in whatever way they can, including through counselling therapies, complementary therapies, and befriending services.
