A LOCAL keep-fit studio has raised over £1,000 for a great cause.

MRC Fitness in Dalry have donated a cheque for £1,030 to Ayrshire Hospice.

The business hosts a Christmas Ceilidh each year and holds a charity raffle to raise the funds.

Local businesses and members donate prizes and buy raffle tickets to help the good cause.

On why Ayrshire Hospice was chosen, owner Lorraine Wallace said: “I think most people can relate, or have someone who has been there, it’s close to lots of people’s hearts.”
