DANIEL O'Donnell took to the stage for a sold out show on Friday May 6, raising money for both MFR Cash for Kids and Inverness Hospital Radio.

The Irish singer has had the concert planned before the pandemic, but it had to be postponed until now.

He came free of charge to help the local charities.

There were also two concert tickets for The Proclaimers up for grabs.

Hellen MacPherson, fundraiser and presenter for Inverness Hospital Radio, said: "The concert was amazing and the buzz with his fans/audience was incredible!

"My effort was all worth while with the fantastic response he received in Inverness from his fans, his show was amazing, reaching out to his audience and in return he felt the welcome. The whole team were a great bunch to work with and the bonus for us they thoroughly enjoyed themselves

"The money will be divided equally with Inverness Hospital Radio who have been broadcasting now for 50+ years and with extra funds we hope to continue our great service. We recently went online and have more options to get out and about at local events, broadcast to local Care homes, involve local charities, organisations, family and friends to have requests played for patients.

"We hope to renovate our two studios which are very dated and purchase modern equipment which will encourage new young members to work along with our well established great membership."
