HOWDENS Ardrossan and the Ayrshire Community Trust have both made kind donations towards new equipment for the Barony St John Centre.

Alan Bell, of the Scottish Centre for Personal Safety, who are based in the Ardrossan building, said a big thank you to both organisations, adding: “It is much appreciated and will have a big impact on our clients and centre users.”
