Thank you to all of you who have purchased The Other Guys latest album ‘Barely Regal’. We are pleased to announce that we have been able to donate £500 of the Album’s proceeds to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Scholarship. The scholarship was set up earlier in 2011 and dedicated to Kate Middleton and Prince William as a wedding present.
The scholarship, worth £70 000 will give someone the opportunity to study at St Andrews University who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do so. We are pleased to be able to give back to the University where successive generations of Other Guys have sung and studied and that spawned the Royal Romance between Kate and Wills that inspired our recent Video and Album. Our thanks go to Dr Louise Richardson, Principal of the University for her support.
The album continues to be on sale online at otherguys.co.uk or from the 600 shop, Market Street, St Andrews. It makes a perfect Christmas gift and we hope that we’ll be able to make further donations to the scholarship from future album proceeds. There’s more information on our Charity pages.
We had great fun this week walking the three streets of St Andrews with Rory McLion raising money for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), one of the chosen charities of the Student Union’s Charities Campaign.

Our day culminated in our sung tribute to Rory himself in the University “Sallies” Chapel! Check it out:
Finally, The Other Guys are delighted to have been invited by Colin Montgomerie, who captained a winning Ryder Cup team, to join him at a Christmas fund raising event for Monty’s Maggie’s Appeal Aberdeen. Colin set up the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation in memory of his mother, having lost her to cancer in 1991. Monty’s current project is to raise £3million in order to bring a Maggie’s cancer support centre to Aberdeen. This charity fund has already passed the £1million mark. The Other Guys will be making a donation to this charity having taken part at a fund raising dinner that takes place soon. Here’s some further information about Maggie’s Aberdeen project.
