An East Kilbride charity has paired up with a university audio society to raise funds.
SAVI (Sexual Assault Victims’ Initiative) worked with Glasgow Caledonian University Audio Society at a gig in Walkabout in Glasgow City Centre.
The gig raised money for SAVI and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), which helps both serving and former servicemen and women.
SAVI founder Annmarie Campbell told the News: “GCU Audio society paired up with SAVI/Savifest.
“They had a gig on Saturday in Walkabout in Glasgow for us and the Glasgow branch of SSAFA.
“We were given just over £200 and raised another £100 ourselves at the event by selling wristbands and jewellery.
Four of the university’s audio society are from East Kilbride and that’s how they found out about Savifest and then SAVI.
“For us it’s great as it’s all young people involved and they are helping us with awareness generally as well as helping with Savifest gigs.
“For them they get experience and it helps them through their degree.
“They’re a great bunchof young people andwe were delighted withtheir support.”
SAVI is a specialised support service for children and young people who havebeen sexually assaulted/abused.
It also supports the families of such victims and offers a 24/7 crisis helpline (08006226986) information, accompaniment andadvocacy to the victim and their family through any formal legal medical processes.
