KINCARDINE and Deeside befriending would like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported their fundraising coffee morning.

The morning raised £900 for the charitym which aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness in older people throughout the Kincardine and Deeside area by matching them on a one to one basis with a volunteer befriender.

A regular visit from a befriender can provide companionship, practical and emotional support, and generally improve physical and mental wellbeing.

As part of their fundraising Kincardine and Deeside Befriending are looking for people to donate their old mobile phones and ink cartridges to be recycled for charity profit.

The befriending charity, which has a base in Stonehaven and Banchory, welcomes donations of any age of mobile phones in any working order, or not working at all. They are also looking for ink cartridges.

These items can be dropped into their collection box in Stonehaven library - which is currently going through a revamp but is running a limited service and still has the donation box available upstairs.

Alternatively, they can be dropped into the K&D office in Stonehaven town centre at 42-46 Barclay Street.
