Bay City Rollers support iconic charity event

Legendary tartan rockers The Bay City Rollers are supporting The MoonWalk Scotland by letting us use their yet to be released new single “Boomerang” as the backing music for our radio ad in Scotland.

Wow! Fantastic news! Legendary tartan rockers The Bay City Rollers are supporting The MoonWalk Scotland by letting us use their yet to be released new single “Boomerang” as the backing music for our radio ad in Scotland.

We love it!… it just makes us want to get out Walking! A huge thank you to The Bay City Rollers for their fantastic support! 

With this year’s “Swing your Tartan” MoonWalk theme, everyone really will be partying Scottish style! How apt then, that Scotland’s legendary tartan rockers, who have just performed sell out reunion gigs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, are supporting the iconic MoonWalk.

John McLaughlin, manager of The Bay City Rollers said : “We’re ecstatic to lend our support to such a fantastic charity,  which has done so much great work over the years. My own wife Sharon has taken part in The MoonWalk Scotland herself, and I’ve seen what happens on the night at first hand. It’s a truly wonderful event.”

Poster Girls, Gael Roy, Jackie Wyllie, Claire Vickers and Julie Sinclair are featured sporting tartan in publicity material for this year’s MoonWalk Scotland.

Gael Roy said:  “We are delighted to be poster girls for such a fantastic event. We take part year on year, as not only is it a personal challenge, but it helps raise money for such a wonderful charity which has supported people close to us. It is very well organised, great fun and the atmosphere on the night is second to none. I would highly recommend signing up, it’s a great accomplishment and you’ll raise much needed funds for such a brilliant cause.”

This year, we are celebrating 20 years of Walk the Walk. Millions of pounds have already been granted towards groundbreaking research and to help those that have cancer in Scotland. We are not only dedicated to raising awareness and money for breast cancer causes, but also passionate about encouraging women and men of all ages to set their own goal and to take more responsibility for their own well-being.

We are looking forward to starting this year from our historic new home, Holyrood Park. Scotland’s much loved challenge will see thousands of Young Walkers, Women and Men Walk through the streets of Edinburgh at Midnight on Saturday 11th June. Wearing the charity’s trademark decorated bras, everyone will be uniting to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Break out the Tartan and be part of this year’s celebrations… join The MoonWalk Scotland here!
