Oban Rotary Club president Kees van Rein has handed over cheques for £200 each to Morven Finlayson of the Salvation Army and Catriona Petit of Hope Kitchen to assist with their Christmas appeals.
President Kees said: ‘The Rotary Club of Oban is delighted to present these cheques in support of the fantastic work that is being done.
‘It has been a very hard year for so many in our community and the Rotary Club of Oban is delighted to be able to support these vital initiatives.
‘It is heart-warming to hear from Morven and Catriona that both organisations have been inundated with support not only from Oban Rotary Club but from organisations and individuals from all over Argyll and the Isles.
‘It is good to know that both the Salvation Army and Hope Kitchen will be flat out over Christmas and New Year giving help and support to all, but particularly to the older, most vulnerable and youngest members of our community.
He added: ‘The generosity, love and care shown by the people of Argyll and the Isles in this most difficult of times is truly uplifting and shows what a special place we live in. We look forward to better times in 2021.’
