The annual Focus Environment Photographic Exhibition took place last week at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, with members of Chevron and local politicians attending.

The Chevron Focus Environment exhibition shows student photography from around the country each year, local entries once again making an appearance.

Local councillors Brian Topping and Charles Buchan were joined at the event by Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP and councillors from the Peterhead and Troup wards.

Greg Germani of Chevron, after praising the entries in this year’s exhibition, and the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses for again hosting the event, presented the museum’s business manager, Gary Campbell, with a cheque for £15,000.

This is the second year in a row that Chevron have donated this amount to the tourist attraction.

A statement from the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, revealing the amount, says: “During the evening reception Greg Germani, on behalf of Chevron, presented the Museum with a £15,000 donation.

“We are extremely grateful for this significant donation to the Museum which will help aid and secure our future development.”

Local entries in this year’s exhibition were, from Fraserburgh Academy, Leona Kennedy with ‘An Autumn Walk’ and Emily Cartney with ‘A Rare Sight’.
