Award sponsor, Russel Benzie of Top Class Recruitment joined Ray McKinnon, Darren Taylor, Ruben Sammut and Dennon Lewis in presenting the award to staff at the hospice.

During the visit a cheque for £1,000, raised by the staff and players at the club, was also presented to Strathcarron Hospice.

Following the formalities, Ray, Darren, Dennon and Ruben took the chance to meet the Day Care patients at the hospice with many pictures taken and stories shared.

Our thanks to the award sponsors Top Class Recruitment and trophy providers, JF Colley for their continued support.

“It’s very important for us to support such worthwhile causes within our community and I hope that the money raised by everyone at the club will go a small way to help the hospice continue their outstanding work.”
