The Deanston care service has received £100 to support residents to progress with their skills and hobbies.

The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK. Every time members buy selected Co-op branded products and services; it gives local causes a helping hand.

She said: “We’re so grateful to Stirling Co-op for its support. This will mean a lot to our residents and they’re having fun deciding what to spend it on.”
