James Brown, owner of JBrown Newsagents in Prestwick, recently completed the West Highland Way and raised a fantastic £1,500 for Shawburn.

James is pictured here with Phillip Howe accepting the generous cheque on behalf of the residents of Shawburn. James and 7 of his friends took part in the gruelling 96 mile trek from Milngavie to Fort William over the course of 5 days. They spent their nights in wigwams and log cabins and on his return James said he'd had a great experience, but nothing was better than the comfort of his own bed! Shawburn residents plan to buy new garden furniture with this donation in the hope that the sun will shine all summer! Thanks to James and everyone who sponsored him including his loyal customers at the newsagents.
