Banchory Men’s Shed receives donation from the Source to Sea team

Banchory and District Men’s Shed are honoured to have received a generous donation of £500 from the Source to Sea Team.

Scott Birse and the team raised money back in July to improve local sports facilities and for the Children’s cancer charity, Charlie House by running the Dee, from Source to Sea – starting at the Wells of Dee at Braeriach.

The fundraising donations were distributed on Monday evening, 8th November, to local groups within the Banchory Community. After the deduction of admin fees etc, Source to Sea donated £11,632 to Charlie House and the same amount spread across 15 clubs/organisations and primary schools respectively.

This was a remarkable achievement by the team which has benefitted all these local organisations.  Banchory Men’s Shed expresses their deepest thanks to the Source to Sea team for their their amazing donation. It will be spent on tools and materials that will fit our own projects for good causes in the community.
