THE Wee County's own Elvis impersonator is set to throw a charity gig this week.

Johnny Lee Memphis will be the main act at a special Elvis Presley tribute night to support Scottish Autism's New Struan School in Alloa.

Singing all of the greatest hits of The King of Rock, Johnny Lee will lead the tribute night at Stirling County RFC on Friday, June 3.

Doors will open at 7.30pm and Johnny Lee's tribute act will be followed by a buffet and disco with fun activities to get involved with.

There will also be a raffle and funds raised will go towards a new multi medium space for children and young people at the charity's school in Alloa.

This space will allow autistic pupils to learn a variety of life skills, including woodwork as well as arts and crafts.

Having seen a quiet period with entertainment taking a hit during the pandemic, Johnny Lee told the Advertiser he is excited to see events returning.

Hailing from Coalsnaughton, Johnny Lee Memphis, real name Jon Fleming, was crowned European Elvis Champion in 2014 and organised Scotland's first-ever Scottish Elvis Festival a few years ago.

During the pandemic he was seen gigging outside care homes to lift residents' spirits and is looking forwards to supporting the good cause, headquartered in Alloa, this time around.

Organising the event is his sister Mhairi McCabe, classroom assistant at New Struan School.

She said: “We are really excited to be putting on this Elvis event at Stirling Rugby Club to fundraise for a new creative space for the pupils we support at New Struan School in Alloa.

"New Struan is a bespoke school supporting 29 autistic children, aged between five and 19 years old, through the charity's independent residential and day school service.

“We hope this fundraiser will allow us to enhance the facilities on offer at the school where pupils can be supported to gain important life skills.

"So, look out those glad rags and come along and join us for what will be a fabulous night of entertainment singing and dancing to some of Elvis’s most loved tracks."

Tickets to the event are £17 per person, including the buffet, with some available on the door on the night.
