A leading UK charity is bringing its trainees to Rothesay for valuable hands-on experience - and it’s all down to the Bute community’s support for the cause.
So says Anna Harrison, manager of Cancer Research UK’s Rothesay shop, which is being used to train the next generation of shop managers for the charity.
Each new trainee manager spends five days in Rothesay with Anna and her team of volunteers - giving them the chance to experience the beauty and hospitality of Bute at the same time as gaining valuable practical experience.
“It’s a huge compliment to the whole team,” Anna said.
“It happened after our first Stand Up To Cancer fund-raiser, when we raised the most money of any of the charity’s shops in the UK, so the decision reflects well on the whole community.”
