A Mearns charity has been awarded £15,000 from Scotmid to add much-needed facilities.
Laurencekirk Memorial Park has received the funding from Scotmid Co-operative’s Community Connect initiative.
The project was launched last year to help support charities, community projects and good causes continue valuable workin communities.
Pillar Kincardine was awarded £7,500 in the latest round of funding.
The Laurencekirk group will put the cash towards improving the space, including plans for a unisex, disabled access toilet.
Spokesman Peter Reid said: “This is fantastic news for the memorial park and the funding of £15,000 from Community Connect will help us to bring our plans to life.
“The park should be a space for all, and that’s why we plan to use the funding to build a unisex, disabled access toilet, with an adjoining storage unit.
“This is something which the local community is really behind and the fact we can now make this plan a reality is a real boost.
“Huge thanks to all the Scotmid members who voted for us – it will make a massive difference to our local area.”
The initiative sees groups win a share of £25,000 generated from the sale of single-use carrier bags to support their ongoing work in the area.
Scotmid members collected votes by swiping their Community Connect card after every in-store purchase and then voted for their preferred good cause.
