The Mormond Inn in Strichen has been presenting cheques to local groups following the success of their May Day weekend event.

Mormond Inn proprietor Stephen Margison has made donations to three good causes recently - with Strichen Toddlers, the village Playgroup and the local Rainbows all receiving donations.

The family pub’s May Day weekend event raised a grand total of £1,419 which has been split between the three organisations.

Following the fund-raising, Stephen Margison presented cheques for £200 to Strichen Rainbows and £295 to the Toddlers, while £880 went to the Playgroup.

Commenting, Stephen said: “The local charities need funding and what better way to raise funds than a family fun day where everyone gets together, has a good time and raises money for charity too.”

The Mormond Inn are due to hold a Family Fun Day and Music Fest event from 1pm ‘til late on Sunday, July 13 - with six acts lined up to perform.

Suggestions are being welcomed for charities and groups to which donations can be made following this month’s Fun Day. Any suggestions can be made via the Mormond Inn’s Facebook page.
