Vaccine nurses dance to viral beat in local beauty spots

A viral dance craze filmed in Forres and other scenic parts of Moray is raising vital funds for a popular local charity.

Sandra McKandie lost her son, Keiran, in a tragic accident in 2016 and set up Keiran’s Legacy to ‘save lives, advance education and provide recreational facilities.’ The fundraising dance has been performed as part of the annual Kilt Walk, which is adding a further 50% to funds raised.

Jerusalema has become a worldwide sensation and has been performed by Austrian Airlines, RyanAir, the Swiss and Irish Police and many thousands more.

Sandra asked her colleagues at the Fiona Elcock Vaccination Centre in Elgin if they would take part in the challenge and more than 40 people put on their dancing shoes to help.

More than £8000 has been raised so far.

Filming took place in the Sunken Gardens in Forres, Califer Viewpoint, Craigellachie Bridge over the Spey, Cullen Viaduct, Elgin High School and Torrieston Woods where Kieran used to ride his bike.

They also performed the dance outside the clinic. Sandra said the locations also reflected some of the places the mobile vaccination clinics have visited.

She added the scenic locations would also highlight the beauty of the area as it emerges from lockdown.

The video was filmed and edited by Dan McQuarrie from Mosstodloch with aerial footage by Marc Hindley from Forres

The Kilt Walk Foundation is adding 50% to all donations made before 3 May.
