SIX good causes are sharing a £4,000 windfall thanks to Inverclyde Rotarians.

The Rotary Club of Greenock made donations to a variety of good causes using funds left over at the conclusion of their financial year, which runs to the end of June.

Members presented cheques for £750 to the Inverclyde Music Festival, Your Voice and Clydeview Academy while Inverclyde Voluntary Council of Social Services, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland and Compassionate Inverclyde all received £600 each.

Club president, Ann Lockhart, says it was nice to finish the year on a high note by giving money to the local organisations.

Ann added: "We do a lot of charity work throughout the year and it's been a really good year."

The cheque presentations took place at a recent club meeting.

Former Aileymill Primary head teacher, Isabel Lind, accepted the donation on behalf of the festival in her capacity as president.

This money will go towards the running costs of the annual event.

Your Voice, represented by Hamish McLeod, will use the funding to buy a defibrillator while Clydeview's cash has been spent on photography equipment for pupils to use outside school.

Teachers Stephen Jewell and Claire Wooler were at the Rotary meeting along with pupil Bradley Shankster, who demonstrated the new camera gear by taking pictures.

David Terrey, from Inverclyde Voluntary Council of Social Services, accepted their donation, which will go towards the running of free buses for the community, while Sandy Nimmo was presented with a cheque on behalf of Compassionate Inverclyde with the cash going towards the their No One Dies Alone (NODA) programme.

Chantal Carr represented Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland and the charity will use the money to send two families on a two-week holiday to one of its chalets in Carnoustie.

Greenock Rotary president Ann said: "Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported us throughout the year."
