Local charity For Bute has contributed £500 to improvement work at one of the most popular viewpoints on the island.

The donation is to Alan and Georgina Denholm to help the couple’s clean-up efforts at the Chapelhill rockery next door to their home, and will be used to buy new plants for the area.

For Bute’s latest round of donations to local good causes also included £1,000 to Bute Advice Centre towards the cost of decorating their new premises in the town’s Bishop Street, £500 to the Argyll and Bute Ladies’ Bowling Association towards the cost of new uniforms, and £500 to the Isle of Bute Trust to help get the new organisation off the ground following its official registration as a charity last month.

All the money comes from revenue generated by For Bute through the sale of donated goods at its charity shop in Rothesay’s Victoria Street; the latest donations take the total raised by For Bute for local good causes to £56,500 since March 2013.
