As the Christmas season gets into full swing Banffshire and Buchan SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has launched his own festive website to spread the gift of giving in his constituency.
The http://ourchristmas.fund/ website, is the innovative creation of Mr Stevenson who launched it last week. Rather than sending out individual Christmas cards, Mr Stevenson designed his own website to spread Christmas cheer.
Mr Stevenson said: “Local SNP membership in my constituency now stands at 1,300. I decided that I would take the money that it would have cost me to send out cards, and invest it in good causes in the Banffshire and Buchan Coast constituency.
“At ourchristmas.fund users can donate to any business, school or group of their choice in the local area. It is up to each individual how much they donate, and they suggest which group should receive money and why. I will match each donation made through the website until I reach £1,000.”
For those who would like a Christmas card from their MSP, a card can be downloaded from the website.
All money collected will be redistributed in the New Year and accounts will be published at the end of February.
