A Christmas card delivery service has raised £645 for the 1st Kemnay Scout Group.

The Scouts, leaders and other volunteers collected, stamped, sorted and delivered 1440 cards to people in the community.

The proceeds raised will go to the Scout group.

Leader Ian Booth said: "1st Kemnay Scout Group would like to thank everyone who trusted us to deliver their village Christmas cards this year.

"We were considering whether to do the cards this year but we recognised the importance of this service, so we carried out risk assessments and decided, with some provisos, that we would go ahead. And I am so glad we did.

"We have collected, stamped, sorted and delivered 1440 cards. It was a bit down on previous years, but amid everything else that's going on at present, that was still a healthy number.

"Thank you so much to Kemnay residents for the very generous donations amassing £645, which will be put to very good use by the Scout group.

"Thank you too, for the volunteers who have delivered the cards for us. A special thanks to Stella Gauld and George Andrew senior for helping out with stamping and sorting of the cards."
