Stevenson's Comedy Turn Helps Local Village Hall

One good (comic) turn led to another for Forglen Hall who are benefiting to the tune of £100 from the comedy efforts of MSPs.

Last month, the Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh invited a number of MSPs to perform a stand-up routine in advance of the election for their patrons. Each was offered a £100 fee and Stewart Stevenson nominated the Friends of Forglen Hall as a worthy cause to receive his fee.

Speaking at Forglen where he took time out from election campaigning to present the cheque to members of the Hall Committee, Stewart Stevenson said:

"It was an interesting experience and I'm pleased that I accepted the invitation to take part in it. However, I don't think I'll be pursuing a career as a professional comedian.

"I was pleased to nominate Forglen Hall as a worthy recipient of the fee which I was offered for taking to the stage for a modest amount of time late one evening.

"I know that the Hall Committee are very pro-active with their activities ranging from Doric Concerts to Christmas Fairs so I'm delighted to be able to help them in this way."
