DONNIE MUNRO and BAND – A CONCERT for TROON
Saturday 29th October 2011 at Troon Concert Hall
Donnie Munro (pictured above) formerly lead singer with Runrig, has enjoyed a successful solo career since 1999, touring in Scotland and Europe and recording a batch of CDs, his album Heart of America being awarded Album of the Year in the Scottish Trad Music Awards 2006.
Donnie and his Band have responded favourably to the suggestion of coming to perform in the Ayrshire town of Troon. Any profits accrued from the concert will be directed to two charities – one local and one of Donnie’s choice:
GARDENING LEAVE is a charity started by Anna Baker Cresswell in 2007 to provide in walled gardens Horticultural Therapy to ex-service personnel. The pilot project was started at Auchincruive in Ayrshire just 15 minutes from the Combat Stress treatment centre at Hollybush where the first referrals came from.
Gardening Leave provides structure, routine, and exercise in safe, peaceful surroundings. The Horticultural Therapist is supported by a group of faithful volunteers.

THE JOSEPH McGOFF FOUNDATION
Joseph, Donnie’s brother-in-law, sadly died of cancer in July 2009. Joseph was very involved in Third World countries charity work and in memory of him, Donnie’s wife, Teresa has set up The Joseph McGoff Foundation to carry on his very worthwhile work.

Supporting Donnie and his Band will be Eric Faulkner who, as a member of the Bay City Rollers, achieved huge commercial success in the 1970s. Eric is an accomplished musician in his own right, and will start the concert with his entertaining act.
Tickets for the concert are available from A Journey Through Time, 51 Ayr Street, Troon, Ayrshire. Telephone 01292 311855.
