TROON community groups are being invited to submit applications for support funding from the town's Rotary Club.

The community support grants are available to help any group, organisation or individual living in Troon, Loans or Dundonald.

The Rotary Club of Troon say they are are particularly keen to help clubs, organisations and individuals in their efforts to support children, young people, the elderly and people with disabilities and/or additional needs.

January saw a belated Christmas gift to Marr College Hockey Club, when Judith McCaughey, a parent member, was delighted to receive the a community support award cheque for £200 from the club.

She revealed the cash would support the purchase of hockey kits as well as travel costs when playing other school teams in competitions.

Meanwhile, it has already been a busy start to 2024, with the club supporting both international and local needs.

Des Small, their latest member, was welcomed into Troon Rotary at the end of last year. With a most interesting and varied career he is proving a great asset to the club.
