Rotary Club of Nairn and the Nairn Citizens Advice joined forces to participate in the Kiltwalk 2021 and raised over £9,000 towards facilities to help local people access on-line to benefits and services.

Doug Maclean, Nairn Rotary spokesman said: "The target to be raised is £15,000 and Rotary and CAB are now well on their way.

"CAB are raising funds to create a much needed facility to help local people to access on-line services for essentials like benefits applications, advisory services, and local government.

"The facility will provide a resource in the form of a training and support room equipped with computers and help on-hand to provide access for people who don’t have it at home, and training for those who need it. Nairn Rotary Club were delighted to support this worthy project."
