Members of a host of Scottish bands have signed up for a new live stream fundraiser to get PPE to key workers in the country.
Taking place tomorrow evening (April 22) from 6-9pm BST, the event is in aid of Masks For Scotland, a newly formed charity raising funds to provide PPE to medical workers across Scotland.
As well as a host of performances, the event is also set to feature talks with Karen Gillan Sir Chris Hoy, James McAvoy, Chvrches vocalist Lauren Mayberry, Peter Capaldi, Mogwai‘s Stuart Braithwaite, Belle & Sebastian‘s Stuart Murdoch and more.
Edith Bowman, co-host of the event, said: “For the Love of Scotland will be three hours of people coming together through music, prose, comedy, conversation and thanks, featuring both plenty of well-known faces and members of the public. I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am to all the people who are helping us out and giving up their time. Now we just have to do it.”
Last weekend, Lady Gaga hosted fundraiser One World: Together At Home, which featured performances from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Stevie Wonder, and Gaga herself. It has raised nearly $128 million (£102m) for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
