Inverness Rotary has donated around £1400 to good causes.

In place of the club’s regular lunch meetings, members have made donations totalling about £700 each to Inverness Foodstuff and the Isobel Fraser Care Home.

Rotarians are also helping where they can by supporting organisations with transport and phone calls.

David Henderson, chairman of the care home’s trustees, was delighted. He said: “It is particularly welcome as it comes at a time when we are incurring considerable additional costs related to Covid-19 and the consequences of the recent break-in robbery at the home.

"Our staff have responded magnificently during the virus threat to ensure the safety of our vulnerable residents.

“A volunteer team locked down and lived in for a period of three weeks at the peak of the crisis to completely isolate the home.

“The donation will be used to show our appreciation to our dedicated staff for these and many other special efforts made during this difficult time.”
