Portlethen & District Voluntary Community Ambulance Association will hold a used-book sale on Saturday, April 26, in Portlethen Academy.
Donations of books can be made to the ambulance which will be parked outside the Academy between 6 and 8 pm on Friday the 25th .
Books can also be dropped off from 9.30am within the Academy on the day of the sale which will run from 10 until noon. Alternatively, books can be collected by calling 01569 730281 (answering machine) or handed in reasonable amounts to the ambulance if someone is in attendance.
This is the start of fund raising to replace the ambulance and it is hoped local businesses and organisations will make the vehicle one of their local charities for consideration this year.
The vehicle, used primarily to take residents to and from the Portlethen Medical Centre is mainly for the elderly but is available for anyone in need of transport. It needs to be replaced every three years once it has travelled 40,00-45,000 miles.
