The Dynamite Kings

A fantastic turnout at the Belted Galloway on 23rd February saw a total of £367.67 raised for the proposed new arts centre in Newton Stewart. Huge thanks to The Dynamite Kings and Bad Reputation for the superb live music and to Darren, Calum and The Belted Galloway for making it all happen.

It takes the total raised to £939.34 already, which is a fantastic start, and with more fundraising events planned in the coming months it's looking very positive for the project.

What was hugely encouraging, as well as the amazing generosity shown on the night, was the words of support from everyone we spoke to about the project.

Thanks to everyone who came along to support the night and we look forward to many more nights like that very soon!
