Justin Currie pledges his support to SBH Scotland

Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie visited Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland’s HQ in Cumbernauld to announce his unique auction prize for this year’s Scottish Entertainment and Hospitality Awards.

The “Roll to me” singer has agreed to compose, produce and record a single for the winner which will also be framed as a keepsake for the highest bidder. As part of the prize, the charity will own the rights to the song, meaning any money made from the music will go directly to specialist charity, SBH Scotland.

Justin Currie visits SBH Scotland

The Scottish Entertainment & Hospitality Awards due to be held at the Glasgow City Hotel on Sunday 8 May, showcases the range and quality of Scotland’s entertainment industry. SBH Scotland is the official charity partner for the annual awards and all money raised on the night by the nominees will go towards the services it provides to families across Scotland.

Justin was inspired to donate the personal prize after he heard about the charity and spent time with SBH Scotland’s service users at one of its bi-weekly play schemes, singing and playing with the children at an “Under the Sea” themed session.

Justin Currie said: “I know one of the families who are supported by Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland. They are consistently singing the praises of the charity and the work they do to make their everyday lives that much easier.

“I wanted to provide a prize that would get people talking as well as hopefully raise a lot of money. I will spend time with the winner getting to know them, so the song will be something truly personal to them.”

Deborah Roe, fundraising director at SBH Scotland, said: “As a huge fan of the band, I was thrilled to welcome Justin to the centre. The children had a great time singing and playing with Justin, and the parents enjoyed themselves too!

“We’re incredibly touched by the prize Justin is offering, as he will spend a lot of time crafting something incredibly individual to the lot winner. It will be something they can keep forever, and will continue to support the charity for years to come.”

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of SBH Scotland who offer a lifetime commitment of support and advice to all those in Scotland affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Now 50 years later, the charity supports over 3,500 children, young people, adults, their family members and carers every year in Scotland.
