An Aberdeen DJ will turn to his record collection this weekend to raise money for a vital food bank organisation.
Mark Paterson, who works under the name All Night Passion, is picking out a selection of tunes and encouraging people to turn their front rooms into nightclubs for the evening.
He is preparing to host a four-hour live DJ stream from 8pm-12am on Saturday in aid of Community Food Initiatives North East (Cfine), promising listeners a “journey through the 90s”.
The DJ and event promoter has held a number of club nights to raise money for the charity over the last six years, and is turning his attention to the internet to continue his support during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mr Paterson said: “Since the lockdown, we have been exploring different ways to continue our parties.
“Our weekly live streams have been a great way to bring people together.
“These uncertain times have also made us think more about the increasing number of people relying on food banks.
“Our loyal community have been extremely generous at previous fundraiser events so hopeful a lot can be raised this Saturday.”
Cfine chief executive Lisa Duthie said demand for the organisation’s services has doubled in recent weeks, and is now delivering 1,000 emergency food parcels every week.
She added: “The coronavirus outbreak fundamentally altered our lives, and Cfine is no exception.
“The global pandemic affected our stocks, resulting in severe shortage of much needed items.
“The funds raised on Saturday will contribute towards purchasing essential food and non-food goods, which will be delivered to people facing difficulty.”
The DJ set can be watched online on the All Night Passion Twitch account.
