Buchan Community Radio DJ Barry Watson is to raise funds in aid of the SANDS (Still Birth and Neonatal Death) charity, with a special 24-hour radio show.

The show will be broadcast on Saturday, September 7, and is a cause close to the DJ’s heart.

DJ Barry told the Buchanie: “I know a few people who are from the Peterhead area who have gone through this tragic experience.

“After speaking to the charity I knew i would like to raise money for the cause.

“The charity is a voluntary charity which began in 1998 and is based in Longside and there is a great group of people who attend regular meetings .”

As well as the epic broadcast, DJ Barry will also be holding a quiz night at the Rocksley Inn, Stirling Hill, on Friday, August 30

The quiz begins at 8pm and teams are asked to be there for 7.45pm. Over 18s only will be admitted.

There will be raffles on sale on the night to win some great prizes which have been donated by local businesses and members of the public.

“I would like to thank everyone for their support,” said Barry.

“There will be music after the quiz from myself and it promises to be a fantastic night for all.”
