ACCLAIMED Irvine duo the Shoes Brothers hope to help save the planet this Christmas.

Fullarton Church minister, the Rev Neil Urquhart and St Mary’s Church Parish Priest, Father Willie Boyd teamed up with people from the congregation for a get-together on Irvine Beach to put their ideas together on Friday.

Neil is relishing the prospect of another project with his fellow clergyman and friend.

He said: “It was all part of our Christmas single, Come To Save Our Planet, which has a recycling theme celebrating how Jesus would want to save the planet as well as people. I know it’s very topical.

“We are going into schools in the area to work on the project in the next few weeks.

“Hopefully we will launch the new single by the beginning of December and people will be able to watch it through Facebook.

“We had a good turnout and people gave us support.”

This is the latest in a series of festive adventures organised by the dynamic duo.

Last year’s single was titled Kindness Rocks and was filmed at locations across the community, including the high flats and also Cunninghame House, as well as many other workplaces.

Their singles all have much humour but the Christian message is central to them.

They also filmed a trilogy which featured inmates in Greenock Prison and was a huge viral hit.

Neil, who recently celebrated his 30th anniversary as Fullarton Church minister has built up strong links with Father Boyd. The Shoes Brothers are a take-off of the Blues Brothers and are famed for their dance moves.
