GBX DJ George Bowie will perform from the balcony of his Glasgow home via Facebook live tomorrow afternoon in aid of Children's Hospice Across Scotland (CHAS).

The fundraiser gig was announced after George previously played a surprise birthday set at the charity's Robin House last spring for Ross McNeil, a 9-year-old sibling to a referred child from Rutherglen.

Glasgow Times:

The 51-year-old father-of-three, who presents on Clyde 1, said: "As a parent of three, I'm very aware of the amazing work CHAS does across Scotland and see this as an important time to back them. It is a tough time for everyone right now, and with so many huge fundraising events being cancelled, charities are really suffering. That's why I have decided to put on a virtual gig to support CHAS.

“If I can get on the decks for an hour, raise some much-needed funds, and bring some Friday afternoon cheer to everyone then that's a great thing. Come along, enjoy the tunes, and support this amazing charity if you can. Any donation you can make would be greatly appreciated!”

Fans can tune in to George’s daytime fundraiser at 3 pm on Friday at
