WE WILL ROCK YOU; Choir hit all the right notes to raise cash for Coats Memorial campaign.
Byline: gary armstrong
Paisley's Rock Choir raised their voices to help save the town's iconic Coats Memorial Church.
Buddies were treated to an afternoon of music thanks to a performance by the everimpressive choir which is backing the campaign to save the historic venue.
The church, which occupies a prominent position in Paisley High Street, closed in August last year after more than a century as a place of worship.
The Rock Choir's appearance is the latest in a number of musical events put on at Coats over recent weekends to generate support.
Campaigners are bidding to turn the building into an events venue and launched the 100 Days to Save Coats Memorial appeal at the start of this year.
So far, more than PS40,000 has been raised towards the fundraising target of PS1.5million.
The aim of the campaign group is to turn the church building into a multi-purpose venue, hosting "spectacular events in an unrivalled setting".
