Young musicians from Tain Royal Academy impressed shoppers in the Highland capital’s largest retail space as they raised hundreds of pounds for charity.

Grizzen Briggs, a traditional music group made up from pupils from the school, performed in the Eastgate Centre in Inverness to support Children 1st.

They were supported by young musicians from Gairloch High School.

Children 1st community fundraiser Jane Clunas said: “They do this every year and they are fabulous.

“It’s a school band, and the headteacher is great about letting them away to come and raise money for us.

“It’s one of my volunteers’ favourite events of the year. They all want to go along because it’s such good fun.

“So many people said it it’s nice to hear some traditional music at Christmas.

“People really enjoyed the music, and we ended up raising £686 through a bucket collection alone.

“We are so grateful to the Eastgate Centre because they have been very good to us.

“The children seemed to enjoy it as well. It really helped spread some Christmas cheer.”
