Kind-hearted Rotarians made a generous donation of £200 to a toddler group after launching a new monthly awards scheme.

The Rotary Club of Hunterston plan to present a cheque to a different community group each month of the year across Ardrossan, Saltcoats, Stevenston, West Kilbride or Fairlie.

President Ewan Cochran and Community Convenor Jim Jackson were pleased to present the January award to St Peters Flying Start Toddler Group in Ardrossan.

Group organiser Josephine Coulter was delighted to receive the £200 cheque for the group’s activities.

Groups interested in applying for a future award can obtain forms from local libraries or from the club’s Facebook page and website.
