Lintel Trust celebrates another successful musical extravaganza
Lintel Trust’s Great Big Lintel 70s and 80s Extravaganza event recently raised more than £2,000 for housing-related community projects across Scotland.
The event, which was held at The Ferry in Glasgow, featured a variety of Scottish housing’s finest musical talent including MacBlondie, The Regenerators, Aye Candy and AChoired taste.
Lintel Trust’s musical fundraising nights have gone from strength to strength over the past few years thanks to Alasdair McKee, chief executive of Glen Oaks Housing Association, who has been responsible for booking the acts who have graced the stage at the popular event.
Lintel Trust, as part of the Link group of social enterprises, has been providing support and grant funding for community projects across Scotland for almost 40 years. It relies on fundraising activities and partnerships with businesses to generate income.
Kate Christie, Lintel Trust’s senior business development officer, said: “Thank you to everyone who braved the cold to come along to our fundraising event. I would also like to thank all of our fabulous bands who volunteered their time to raise money for our cause.
“Not to forget our sponsors; Link Group; SFHA; ARM Architects; Queens Cross Housing Association and the driving force behind the night, Alasdair McKee of Glen Oaks Housing Association – without the support of these organisations and people, we couldn’t have run this popular event.”
Alasdair McKee added: “I’m delighted to have worked alongside the Lintel Trust as the co-organiser of another successful Lintel fundraising event. There is so much hidden musical talent in the housing association sector and it was great to see it on stage. The Lintel musical events are very popular and enjoyed by everyone who attends, and raise much needed cash for a great charity.”
