A LOCAL youth initiative received a donation of more than £1,000 from the Rotary Club of Dumbarton.

Time for Tully, which provides children and their families in Tullichewan access to sports, play equipment, services and days out, was handed £1,325 from the club.

Nicola Snedden, the chairperson, said: “We are delighted and thankful to receive this generous offer from the Rotary Club of Dumbarton, which will be put to more activities and experiences for the young people of Tullichewan."

Time for Tully has been in operation for just over a year, during which they campaigned for and secured multi-function football/basketball posts from West Dunbartonshire Council for the large greenspace area in Tullichewan.

It has also organised other activities for children, such as an all-expense paid trip to the Glasgow Science Centre for 80 kids and parents. 

The Rotary Club raised the funds during their Annual Charity Dinner, which took place at the Dumbarton Golf Club.

The club donated the remainder of the money to other clubs and charities.

Calum Macdonald, president of the club and Mike Dean, representing the club, attended the presentation.
