Heartening music: Aly and Phil give thumbs-up to fundraiser

 
 
 

EVERYONE was in good heart for the Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham gig at the Buccleuch Centre recently.
The Langholm branch of the British Heart Foundation held a fundraiser on the night and the musicians gave it their wholehearted support.
Aly and Phil have both had heart problems, Aly having had a bypass operation, so it was an apt encounter with Jim and Sandra Thomson who ran the stall.
Sandra said: “It was really a coincidence we were there that night. I knew Phil had had heart problems a number of years ago but hadn’t known about Aly’s bypass operation.
“They ended up talking to Jim, who had stents fitted a month ago. It was quite fortuitous.”
The group raised £132 and is having a coffee morning in the centre on Saturday, November 23.
