Members of the Isle of Bute Parkinson’s Support Group received a donation of £300 at the recent AGM of the Bute Agricultural Society.

The cheque was presented to Andrew Horn and Annie MacDougall by the society’s chairman Alistair MacFarlane and committee members Duncan Martin and Yvonne Crawford.

The group’s meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month at the United Church of Bute in Rothesay, where those who suffer from, or are affected by, Parkinson’s can enjoy an informal meeting and sometimes a talk from an appropriate visitor.
