Massive Boost for Xmas-Lights

CAMPAIGN to raise cash for Christmas lights in Stranraer has received a massive boost - a 2000 scooter to be used as a fundraiser.

Elaine Mann, projects co-ordinator with Wigtown Council for Voluntary Service, contacted Dunragit-based Aprilia to see if they would provide a gift of some kind.

Their response took her breath away - they came up with the scooter.

"We were really taken aback when they offered us the scooter", Elaine told the 'Free Press'
" It is very generous".

Councillor Willie Scobie, who is heavily involved in the lights project, said he had spoken to Julie Reynolds, wife of the managing director.
"She said they were delighted to be involved", he revealed.
