McClintock Bakery in Stranraer has been collecting the 5p carrier bag charge since last October and, after the sale of 2000 bags, has raised the princely sum of £100.
Members of staff at the bakery outlet shop – Molly Brown, Stacey Paterson, Andrea Brown, Donna Rowan, Kerry Henderson, Sharon McKie and Ann Slavin – decided amongst themselves that Macmillan Cancer Support would be the recipient.
Edith McDonald and Ena Drummond, both members of the Macmillan Cancer Support Stranraer Committee were on hand to receive the donation. Steve Hardy, Chair of the Stranraer Committee said: “This is not the first time that the charity has benefited from members of staff of the bakery outlet as Andrea Brown completed the Macmillan Mull of Galloway Challenge. I would like to thank the members of staff for choosing Macmillan Cancer Support as the recipient of this donation.”
