Scotland’s children’s charity Aberlour has celebrated its 140th anniversary, in a glittering reception with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
The organisation, which is the largest solely Scottish children’s charity, welcomed more than 250 supporters, funders and those who use the charity’s services, to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh on Tuesday (1 December 2015).
The First Minister gave a powerful speech about Aberlour’s work before a program of entertainment got underway, including a performance by a children’s choir and showing of short films by a BAFTA winning filmmaker.
Five of our young people from the Kingsway Music Stars travelled to Edinburgh with other young members from Aberlour’s Youth Point in Govan to take part in the anniversary celebrations.
They formed part of a 40 piece choir who sung ‘One Scotland’ a song especially created for the occasion. Following the formalities all the children got the chance for a photoshoot with our First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
