Liz Williamson and friends Bob Moon and Guy Burgess – otherwise known as music trio Ony Direction – are set to hold a fund-raising concert in the village's Hall Church in aid of Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS).

The group will be joined four other guest performers from the local area and further afield.

However, the concert is the introduction to the main fund-raiser Liz (69) is undertaking for the charity which, on October 6, will see her abseil down a 185ft section of the Forth Rail Bridge.

"We're really looking forward to the concert and we hope to get a good turnout on the night," she said.

"I was supposed to be doing another marathon for CHSS this year but I picked up an injury so I ended up doing the abseil.

"I don't have a head for heights but it should all be over in about 10 minutes!"

Liz's fund-raising efforts for CHSS have a very personal motivation – her mum, Margaret Graham, died five years ago from a stroke aged 95.

She has already been working hard on the fund-raising side of things, with collection cans in various outlets in Cullen plus a Just Giving page online.

Tickets for the concert cost just £6, with the doors opening at 6.30pm for a 7pm start teas and coffees as well as raffles will be available, with the event scheduled to last to around 10pm.
