AN ELLON playgroup has benefited to the tune of hundreds of pounds, after one of the teams taking part in the town’s Pedalcar Race handed over its sponsorship.
The team representing the Tolbooth Hotel made the donation after raising the money from their entry.
Auchterellon spokeswoman Alison Crighton told the Times: “We’re extremely grateful to the Tolbooth who raised, together with the group, a total of £580. Part of the money is to be used to buy some much needed arts & crafts equipment and replace some old toys.
“The money will also be used towards alterations to the loft access, and to provide shelving in the new shed -a massive thank you to all who took part and donated money. It is very much appreciated!”
