Saddling up the big bucks

WORLD record-breaking long-distance cyclist Mark Beaumont has presented Dundee charity Eighteen and Under with a cheque for £15,000 as part of Scotmid’s new Community Connect initiative.

Beaumont delivered the cheque to Eighteen and Under at Scotmid in Fintry, Dundee, as part of the new scheme from the co-operative.

Initially trialled in Scotmid’s north member region and scheduled to roll out in the west region, the new Community Connect initiative lets Scotmid members collect votes every time they shop in store, allowing them to have a say in how charity funds are distributed.
