A YEAR of fund-raising effort by the Carnoustie branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland culminated recently in a cheque presentation in the clubrooms.

Gavin Wilson, main organiser of the fund-raising events, is pictured handing over a marvellous donation of £3,395.12 to Catherine Cowie from Erskine Hospital.

The total comprises the proceeds of various functions and fund-raising events held in the branch, a street collection during Erskine Hospital Week, and collecting cans placed in local shops.

Swelling the total were two generous donations. Mr and Mrs Herron added £600 which was raised at their diamond wedding anniversary celebration and newly weds Audrey and Maurice Kendal donated £460 which they had raised in lieu of wedding presents.
