As recently mentioned on DCR97.4FM and here on our Web Site on the 1st  May Carol Gillies will be setting off on her Suzuki V-Strom motorbike to ride around Scotland anti-clockwise to raise awareness and donations for Water Aid

She will be riding mainly b and c roads, in order to take in as much of the coastline as possible. (Apart from the obvious bit where the border is and the land ends) she recons on it being like being around 1,950 miles in total.

That’s going to use quite a bit of petrol obviously a vital element to make the plan work and at the same time we here at Dunoon Community Radio are trying to put together enough funding to purchase a vital piece of equipment.

Working together we have organised a Fun Night out in the Innellan Village Hall which will produce enough money from the ticket sales to get Carol around the Coast of Scotland and for us to purchase our equipment. We have called our Fund Raiser “Thank Funk It’s Friday” so you know straight away this is going to be a fun night with music from the 60s and 70s .

We have also asked our listeners to let us know what their favourite disco tunes are and by this we mean favourite Mobil Disco tunes the tunes played at Wedding Receptions, Birthday and Anniversary Celebrations held in Village and Church halls and local Hotel Function rooms which for the majority of us is where we get to Boogie on Down and Strut our Stuff.
