Footballers in Campbeltown have handed over cheques worth £650 to local charities.

Campbeltown Over 35s Friday night football club handed over the awards at the all weather pitches where they play last Friday night.

The biggest cheque for £400 was handed over to Wilma Stevenson and Moira Wareham of the Campbeltown branch of Macmillan Cancer Support, with the stipulation that all of the money is to be used locally.

George Rahman of the Campbletown branch of the Royal British Legion was presented with a cheque for £150. He said: ‘A big thank you to the club for their kind donation of £150 to the branch. The money will be used to purchase poppy crosses and a poppy wreath for placing at Kilkerran Cemetery on November 9 at 1030am. Members of the club are invited to join us on the day to place a cross at a Commonwealth War Grave.’

The third cheque for £100 was handed over to Donna Graham and Courtney Lang from the Co-op to go to their community fund which donates to many local causes.
