The money was presented last week to ArCaS chairman Douglas Johnston in Brodick last week. The charity has provided support and crucial transport links for cancer patients from the island to hospitals on the mainland since 1989. It was specifically chosen by the team based at the SSC’s Lamlash Bay site.
An annual highlight in the Arran social calendar, the Brodick Highland Games has been held every year since 1886. Throughout the day, a team from The Scottish Salmon Company offered samples and presented foodie demonstrations, including ways to introduce salmon into the family diet and sessions on how to smoke your own salmon.
Craig Anderson, MD of SSC, said in a press release: “Working closely with our local communities is extremely important to us. We had a fantastic day at the Brodick Highland Games and are already looking forward to next year’s event.
“Our salmon-in-a-bun proved to be very popular with visitors to the Games and as a result we are delighted to donate £598 to ArCaS, which provides such a crucial service to communities on Arran.”
Douglas Johnston, Chairman of ArCaS, said: “The transport we provide is crucial for members of the community and their families here on Arran who are suffering from cancer and struggle to make the significant journey to mainland hospitals on their own.
“To have the support from The Scottish Salmon Company is incredibly important and this donation means we can continue to provide these much-needed transport services. We are very grateful for their support and look forward to working together again in the future.”
