AN AYR support group for people with macular disease is appealing for local volunteers to give up their time and help the charity.

The Ayr and District Macular Society Support Group meets on the last Tuesday of each month from 2-4pm at Holy Trinity Church Hall in Fullarton Street.

Duties will include organising meetings, booking speakers and serving refreshments to members.

The group offers information, encouragement and friendship to people who are affected by macular disease.
