Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla support Scotland flooding victims

OHMYGOSSIP — Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have shown their support for a charity album for the victims of flooding in Scotland.
The 68-year-old royal and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, travelled to the Scottish village of Ballater in Aberdeenshire where a concert was held to raise funds for those who were left devastated when flooding from the River Dee destroyed around 600 homes and 100 business in December 2015.
The charity album, entitled ‘Immortal Memory’, is a collection of music by the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir, directed by composer Paul Mealor, and was premiered at the concert in Glenmuick Church on Thursday (12.01.17)
Prince Charles had been staying in Balmoral when the floods hit the village, and travelled to visit the destruction at the time.
He also contributed to a fundraising drive to rebuild a caravan park, and is supporting further redevelopment of the town with the opening of a restaurant called The Rothesay Rooms.
Speaking at the concert, Prince Charles said: “It was only a year ago when my wife and I came here, following the awful floods, and it was incredible to see how he had made such an enormous difference to so many people’s lives who were having such a terrible time – as you all remember too well.
“I can never get over how remarkably resilient and courageous you all are for what you have had to put up with, and the way you have overcome these terrible challenges which have been thrown at you.
“It is a very special place, Ballater, and it has been wonderful to see how so many of the shops have been able to get back to trading again.
“And let us hope, ladies and gentlemen, that, from now on, things will greatly improve.
“This CD will make an enormous difference to the Ballater Flood Appeal.”
‘Immortal Memory’ by the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir will be available in selected record stores and available for digital download on Amazon and iTunes from January 20.
