Newly established Acharacle Brownies are celebrating after receiving funding for new equipment from the Rotary Club of Lochaber.

As well as the local township, the group welcomes members from the wider areas of Ardnamurchan and Moidart.

Rotary Club president Clive Talbot said: ‘We were delighted to award £350 and support this very worthwhile community venture.

‘It sits perfectly with the club’s ethos of supporting communities and encouraging youth activities.’

Speaking on behalf of the Brownie Unit, Marie Luise MacDonald said: ‘We are really pleased to receive the grant money from the Rotary Club as we have just recently started up our new unit – which the girls seem to really enjoy.

‘The funds will allow us to buy equipment that will be used for years to come so that hopefully lots of girls in the area will benefit.

‘Acharacle is a great community for youngsters to grow up in but there are not always activities available for the younger members of the community. I am hopeful that by setting up the Unit for Brownies we can evolve into Brownies and Guides in future, therefore this is a long-term plan.’
