Two community groups in the north-east have been awarded £1,000 after winning a competition.
The two Buckie groups were selected as successful entrants of a Post Office competition out of 2,332 entries.
Moray MS Community and Friends of the Fisherman’s Hall Group both took home a grand after being crowned “CommonUnity” victors.
The MS charity supports people with multiple sclerosis, as well as their families and carers, and will be using the money to run a weekly MS exercise class at a local gym.
Friends of the Fisherman’s Hall Group is used by many groups and organisations in the town.
With their prize money they will help to run a social enterprise cafe for the older generation of the town, and to set up a youth club with new equipment and games.
Post Office Retail chief executive Debbie Smith said: “Post Office branches are at the heart of villages, towns and cities across the UK so it’s really encouraging to see just how much a shared sense of community continues to matter in modern Britain.
“Our CommonUnity winners have shown real dedication to inspiring community spirit and I’m delighted to celebrate and reward their efforts.”
