Glaswegaian Stone Roses tribute act Resurrection chose Campbeltown to start its 20th anniversary UK-wide tour.

Last Friday night’s gig, organised by Cheryl Brown of Bliss Beauty, raised funds for Shopper-Aide, The Hub and Elderberries where Cheryl volunteers her services for free doing nails.

The tribute band’s name comes from the final track on the Stone Roses debut album, I am the Resurrection, recorded in 1989 and released as a single in 1992 making number 33 in the UK single charts.

Ms Brown explained that she has made good friends through volunteering for Elderberries including Gillian Edwards for whom she did treatments.

MsBrown added: ‘I want to say a big thank-you to the Hub’s Mandy Lay Robertson who does so much fo the youth in Campbeltown’s community.

‘One of the most important things about tonight is keeping the money we raise in Kintyre.’
