David Rout Charity ChequesFIREFIGHTERS have handed over charity cheques amounting to more than £12,000.

Aberdeenshire and Moray crews raised the fantastic amount after hosting a charity dance and dinner in November at the Douglas Hotel in Aberdeen.

And this month Local Senior Officer David Rout handed over four cheques to the chosen charities.

Speaking after the presentation, LSO Rout said: “It was my privilege to hand over these cheques to some very worthy causes that are close to all of our hearts in the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, our staff and of course the charities themselves – all of whom made this possible.”

The four cheques represented the Firefighters Charity, the SFRS Family Support Trust and Anthony Nolan who all received £3650 – as well as local charity Sandpiper Trust who received £1,000 of the proceeds.
