RSDG Service and Development Manager John Dougan said: “We are grateful that Merlin and the rest of the committee decided to support Relationships Scotland Dumfries and Galloway with a share of the money raised at their annual Dumfries Christmas Fair. It was an excellent event and we are proud to be associated with it and the organisation.”
Chairman of the Board Duncan McEachran added: “As the only charity in Dumfries and Galloway providing relationships counselling, family mediation and child contact this money will enable us to continue to help families across the region.”
