Alex Salmond attended a special Soup and Sweet fund-raiser at the Ritchie Hall in Strichen on Saturday, March 7, which was held in aid of Five Sisters Zoo in West Lothian.

The event, which attracted craft and trade stalls from across the country, was aimed at helping the animal sanctuary’s efforts to re-home four ex-circus male lions.

Huge congratulations are due to the organisers for their efforts
