Girvan Playgroup was delighted to receive a handsome cheque for £935 from staff and customers of the Co-Op store in the town.

The money was raised by a tombola and weekly bonus ball and raffles run in the store.

They also raised £1882 for the Carers Trust.

The playgroup would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and customers of the store for the fantastic amount they raised.

The group said that donations such as this are an amazing boost for which they are very grateful as they receive no funding as it is a registered charity.

The playgroups is open to all of the community. The group provides sessions for pre-school children to have fun and play with children of their own age group.

It also runs a lunch club for children attending afternoon sessions at nursery so that they can come to playgroup for the morning then have lunch before being taken to the nursery by the playleaders.

The playgroup currently has a waiting list but enrolment forms are available.

Club meeting times are 9.30 - 11.30am Monday to Friday at the Community Centre, Dalrymple Street, Girvan.
