MP for Gordon, Colin Clark, has handed over his council salary to two local causes.

The former Inverurie and District councillor visited Roxburghe House recently to hand over a cheque to them and Macmillan Nurses.

He said: “I pledged to donate my salary from the Council once I became an MP in June.

"I split the sum between these two outstanding charities and both will be able to claim gift aid which will boost my contribution by a further 25 per cent.”

Mr Clark added: “Cancer has affected my family in the last year losing my Mother and my Father-in-Law.

"Hospices and end of life care are invaluable and hugely appreciated at the most difficult times in our lives.”
