Inverurie and District Men’s Shed is among 11 groups in Aberdeenshire to receive Keep Scotland in Beautiful community grants of £250 each.

It helped the group to buy a raised bed and plant a range of fruit and vegetables in their recently-constructed polytunnel.

Group members carried the project and it helped to support the work of the Shed in promoting improved mental and physical health and well-being for retired and disabled men.

The grants have been funded from the proceeds of the single carrier bag charge collected by Tesco in Scotland since October 20 last year.

Keep Scotland Beautiful became the retailer’s charity partner for carrier bag charges after a public vote.
