GLASGOW’S Cathouse Rock Club has pledged to raise £30,000 by November – in time for its 30-year anniversary.

Speaking to The Glasgow Times, head of marketing Andy Clark said the club wants to give back and see a difference in the city around them.

“Everyone around me seems to think that we’re going to smash the target but I do think it will be slightly difficult,” he said.

“The Cathouse has gone through many transformations over the years and particularly in the last four or five.”

The first month of the 10-month fundraiser will be dedicated to Epilepsy Scotland, and a silent auction will be set up for the winning bidder to receive tickets to see American heavy metal band Slipknot at the SSE Hydro.

Other fundraising initiatives include asking guestlist users to pay a £1 charity donation every Friday, taking part in a Firewalk Challenge on Burns Day and tribute gigs for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery.

Organisations receiving support from the charity drive will include local mental health charity Flourish House, Cats Protection, Stonewall Scotland, Diabetes Scotland, LGBT Youth Scotland, Friends of the Earth Scotland and Age Scotland.

Andy added: “These charities are near and dear to our heart, supporting vital causes in Scotland.

“We would love for as many people as possible to get involved, to support us on our journey and help smash our target.

“All the charities that we’ve chosen reflect a cause we believe in and everyone here believes that each charity will resonate differently with each customer.

“We hope that everyone that walks through our door supports a charity that they value.”
