TROSSACHS and Teith Coun­cil­lor Eve­lyn Tweed praised Cal­lan­der’s com­mu­nity spirit af­ter a fire dam­aged a num­ber of prop­er­ties.

One Cal­lan­der fam­ily was left with­out a home as the re­sult. Coun­cil­lor Tweed worked with Stir­ling Coun­cil of­fi­cials to se­cure emer­gency ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Or­gan­is­ers set up a Just­giv­ing charity do­na­tion page and held a jum­ble sale, a tombola and an auc­tion. Coun­cil­lor Tweed met or­gan­is­ers last week at the jum­ble sale rais­ing money for the vic­tims of the fire.

Coun­cil­lor Tweed has since writ­ten to or­gan­is­ers to thank them for their work. She said: ‘On be­half of the lo­cal com­mu­nity, I am grate­ful to the in­di­vid­u­als who ded­i­cated their time and ef­forts to help­ing oth­ers in any way they could.’
