Two mem­bers of the Brod­ick Co-op have been recog­nised on a na­tional level for their in­volve­ment and suc­cess in work­ing within the com­mu­nity on Ar­ran.

Co-op re­gional man­ager Alan Camp­bell vis­ited the store and pre­sented store man­ager Liz McLean and mem­ber pi­o­neer Mark Har­wood with awards in recog­ni­tion of their con­tri­bu­tions to char­i­ta­ble causes and the as­sis­tance they have pro­vided in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Alan said: ‘Con­grat­u­la­tion to Liz and Mark on th­ese awards. Their in­valu­able work is well known on Ar­ran so it is great that they can re­ceive the recog­ni­tion on a na­tional level from the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Ap­pre­ci­ated

‘Their hard work and al­tru­is­tic en­deav­ours are ap­pre­ci­ated by us all, as is ev­i­dent by the fact that it was cus­tomers and col­leagues who nom­i­nated them to re­ceive th­ese awards.’

Mem­ber pi­o­neer Mark, who has worked at build­ing links be­tween the Coop and the com­mu­nity, has played a lead­ing role in the suc­cess of the food share ini­tia­tive, Think About Plas­tic group, De­men­tia Friendly Ar­ran and the newly-formed autism group, thanked Liz, col­leagues and cus­tomers for al­low­ing him to be able to con­trib­ute in such a mean­ing­ful man­ner.

Mark said: ‘It is great to re­ceive this award which I could not have done without the sup­port of every­one in­volved and from the Coop it­self.’

The Brod­ick Co-op plays a huge role in com­mu­nity af­fairs and sup­port­ing char­i­ta­ble causes on Ar­ran and re­cently pre­sented the Ar­ran Moun­tain Res­cue Team and Feis Arainn with cheques to­talling more than £40,000.

Liz thanked Alan for com­ing to Ar­ran to present the awards and said: ‘Th­ese awards are on be­half of the whole team who have helped to make this pos­si­ble.

‘They and the great com­mu­nity on Ar­ran are the ones who are to be thanked for al­low­ing us to play our part in the won­der­ful Ar­ran com­mu­nity.’ Team mem­bers Ash­ley Ou­tram and Maya Maclean are in a fes­tive mood while rais­ing funds for a char­i­ta­ble cause ben­e­fit­ing the el­derly.
