COUNCILLOR Jim Montgomerie was invited to talk to the members of the Saltcoats Dockers Ladies Club about his role within North Ayrshire Council.

He also spoke to the group about his charity work including his role as Ambassador for anti-violence group, White Ribbon Scotland and his work with the IMC Projcet in the town where he offers teenagers the chance to train in boxing and fitness in a bid to keep them off the streets.

To his surprise the women handed the councillor food parcels to be given to people in the community and a small donation towards the IMC’s dream of making it to Everest’s Base Camp.
