A LOCAL pub this week donated over £1,500 to two Three Towns schools.

Charlie’s Bar in Ardrossan hold an annual raffle at Christmas where regulars and visitors pay to try and win prizes ranging from bottles of spirits to a brand new television.

And James McFarlane and James Reid Schools were once again the recipients of the money raised, with this years tally coming in at £1,550.

Billy Woods, pictured with wife Molly, would like to pass on his thanks to everyone who contributed to the raffle.
