Grants totalling more than £40,000 have been awarded to 28 Men’s Sheds round Scotland including Campbeltown.

A grant of £1100 will allow the shed to purchase multi-use tools and equipment which will enable shedders to carry out projects for older townspeople.

Age Scotland chief executive, Keith Robson, said: ‘Men’s sheds can play a huge role in reducing loneliness and isolation and the stories we hear from shedders goes to prove just that.’
