VIDEO: Bute charity shop supports island groups

Local charity thrift shop, For Bute, has distributed more cheques this week to deserving island community groups.

Receiving a cheque for £1000 was Kingarth and Kilchattan Bay Improvements Committee’s orchard group, who intend on using the money to buy a heavy-duty lanwnmover, while cheques for £200 and £150 were given to Beachwatch Bute and Ferfadd Court, respectively.

The shop in Victoria Street has already donated cash to Bute Youth Football Coaching, Bute Community Links, Crossroads (Caring for Carers), the Bute community day centre’s lunch club, the King Street Parents and Toddlers Group and youth football coach James O’Donnell since it opened its doors earlier this year.
