ORGANISERS of a sponsored beach stroll handed over thousands of pounds to charity last night.

More than 130 people took part in September’s Sandwalk between Newburgh and Balmedie, which is one of the Ellon and Balgownie rotary clubs’ biggest fundraisers.

Walkers were offered the opportunity to raise cash for four charities – Cancer Link Aberdeen and North (Clan), Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (Chas), Erskine Hospital, and Teen Challenge – which each received a slice of £7,500 last night. Representatives of event sponsor, the Trump Organisation, attended the event, on the night a documentary aired about the developer’s plans to build a £750million golf resort near Balmedie.
