Bereavment support group Lend A Lug held a fundraising raffle last week raising over £1000.

Lend a lug was started by Karen Martin in April 2013.

Karen said: “I started the group as there was no bereavement support available to people in South Ayrshire.

“I know this from personal experience as I lost my brother Sean Martin in 2010 in a road traffic accident and when I looked for support for my family there was none available.”

Lend a lug meetings are weekly on a Wednesday night at the Carrick Buildings from 6pm until 7.30pm.

“The raffle we had last night was to raise funds for the group for venue cost and general running of the group,” added Karen.

The raffle raised £875 and a cheque from the members of Body Matters gym was also donated who had managed to raise a further £200 for the group.

Bill Logan of the Girvan Z1 youth group was the special guest invited along to draw the grand raffle.
