HUNDREDS of pounds were raised for a national charity by the Wee County's business support service.

The Christmas raffle at Ceteris, based on Whins Road, raised £295 for Down's Syndrome Scotland with the cheque recently handed over (pictured).

It is a good cause close to the heart and was chosen as employee Stuart McCusker's young son has Down's Syndrome.

Stuart said: "I was very touched that my colleagues picked Down's Syndrome Scotland to be the beneficiary of our raffle this year.

"The charity have offered constant support and advice to our family since Liam was born and I'm delighted that we were able to raise this money for them."
