Peterhead Camera Club sold some surplus equipment recently and the members decided to donate the proceeds to three local charities.

The group presented money to Community Off-Road Transport Action Group (COTAG 4X4 Response), the Fishermen’s Mission and Age Peterhead.

COTAG 4X4 Response supports the emergency services, local authorities and charitable groups.

It is a group consisting of highly trained volunteers who own 4X4 vehicles which have been modified to high standards.

The Fishermen’s Mission provides support to Fishermen and their families in times of need.

Age Peterhead provides help and support to the elderly in the form of a sitter to enable carers to get some time to go shopping, pop out to appointments or other various outings.
