A LOCAL group were boosted to the tune of £700 for outings across the country.

On May 16 Janet Strang, the Chairperson of Cunninghame Housing Association, presented the cheque to The Wednesday Friendship Club to help the group with their outings.

She said: “We are delighted to be able to support the Wednesday Friendship Club of Senior Citizens and Handicapped/Disabled People with their costs in providing a contribution towards their self-funded outings."

If you are a local group/individual and you are interested in submitting an application for funding please contact Karlin Mclaughlan, Administrator to the Chief Executive on 01294 606005.
