Carol singing at Emap

Emap stations MFR, Tay, Northsound, Forth and South West Sound are uniting to broadcast a recording breaking attempt for the biggest ever carol concert in Scotland.

The events take place on December 16th to mark the end of the Every Penny Counts fund raising campaign. The world record for the biggest carol concert stands at 7,514 people, which organisers hope to beat.

Dawn Gibson, Marketing and Communications Director for Emap Radio Charities, said: "The carol concert will mark the end of the Every Penny Counts campaign which we have been running with Tesco to raise money for underprivileged children. We thought a lovely way to end the campaign would be to organise a carol concert which families can all attend and celebrate all the money that has been raised to help local children.

"We will be holding five concerts simultaneously in the areas of MFR, Tay, Northsound, Forth and South West Sound and we will broadcast them on December 23rd”. We are going to try and beat the world record but if we don’t manage it then we think this will still be the biggest carol concert Scotland has ever seen.”

Local children’s charities in each of the radio station areas are set to benefit from the four week fund-raiser which has seen 71 Tesco stores nationwide participating.
