A Christmas jumper day in a supermarket raised more than £1000 from generous shoppers.

Maybole Save the Children branch and volunteers collected at Morrison’s Store, Ayr by doing bag-packing for busy customers.

Chairwoman Becky Fleming said: ”We raised a fantastic sum of £1,031.38 - brilliant!

“We would like to say a big thank-you to the crew of fifth and sixth years from Carrick Academy - they were very

surprised to find one of their first customers was the head teacher, Keith Webster!”
