The Money Shop of Fraserburgh have boosted the funds of charity Help for Heroes this week with news that the local branch have raised a considerable sum for the good cause.
As part of a nationwide initiative for Help for Heroes, the Fraserburgh store has raised £800 towards the charity that supports members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the line of duty.
Dougie Thomson, manager of Fraserburgh’s Money Shop, said that stores were aiming to raise £32,000 for Help for Heroes this year, commenting that the target was well on the way to being met.
At an Aberdeen exhibition recently, Mr Thomson was able to get professional darts player Simon Whitlock to sign a set of darts for raffle.
Organised by Katherine Madden, the raffle was won by Dougie Thomson of Fraserburgh.
Speaking after the presentation, Mr Thomson said that the willingness of local people to get behind the charity was really helpful.
Those interested in making a contribution to Help for Heroes may still do so by purchasing £2 wristbands from The Money Shop.
Alternatively, donations may be made through the Help for Heroes website at www.helpforheroes.org.uk.
