A charity supporting cancer patients and their families was delighted to receive a cheque for £3200 from The Athole Lodge No. 384 recently.

The cash for MacMillan Cancer Support was the proceeds of a year of fundraising by the local lodge, including an annual dinner dance, Burns Supper, Hallowe’en ball and karaoke nights.

Brother Alan J. McNaughton is pictured with Cara Inglis, fundraising manager for MacMillan, and fellow lodge members.

He said: “It was a very easy decision for me to make as to which charity to raise funds for.

“I don’t know of any family that has not been affected by Cancer, more so than my own.

“My sincere thanks to everyone involved throughout my year. I had a target number in my head I was hoping we would raise, but I am happy to say we knocked it out the park.”
