SOME of Helensburgh and Lomond’s most talented singers, dancers and musicians took to the stage at the Victoria Halls on Friday night for the town’s annual ‘Sing For Your Supper’ charity concert.

Organised by the Helensburgh Savoy Musical Theatre Group, the night is a long-standing fixture of the town’s events calendar and always attracts a big audience, as well as a fantastic variety of local talent - and the 2019 event was no different.

Musicians on the bill included Hermitage Academy pupils Jessica Noble and Scott McGinlay - who sang as well as playing the saxophone - plus the Lomond and Clyde Community Orchestra and the Helensburgh Recorder Group, while vocal talent on the bill included the Dorian and Oratorio Choirs, Tartan Harmony and the all-female JAMM quartet.

And the programme was completed by hugely talented members of the dance schools in Helensburgh run by Margaret MacInnes and Claire Burns.

All proceeds from this year’s event went to the Helensburgh and Lomond Young Carers project, who will receive a donation for £1,000 as a result of the generosity of Friday’s audience.

Savoy secretary Pauline Forrest said: “It was a very successful evening.

“The event has been going for so many years that it can be difficult to ring the changes, but the programme is slightly different each year, and the participants and audience members all seemed to enjoy the night.”

The Savoy’s next event is its ‘Craft and Coffee’ day on March 23 in the Helensburgh United Reformed Church hall, to raise funds towards its annual stage production in November - which this year will be the musical ‘Legally Blonde’.

Rehearsals are also under way for the Savoy’s spring concert on May 3 - a lively cabaret-style evening of songs from a variety of musicals.

Anyone who wishes to join the group, or find out more, should come along to St Michael’s Church Hall in William Street in Helensburgh on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm, or email for details.

No auditions required - all you need is a love of singing and a sense of fun.
