THE Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre has got 2011 off to a good start with a donation of almost £1,000.
Larkhall woman Anne Innes, pictured (left) presenting a cheque to centre manager Anne McGuire, raised £917 by walking the West Highland Way.
The Hamilton-based centre provides emotional and practical support to women and girls over the age of 12 who have experienced rape or sexual abuse at any time in their lives.
Anne McGuire said: “We are so grateful to Anne for all the hard work she put into raising this money for the centre, we know it wasn’t easy for her.
“The money will be put towards helping the women who contact us for support, so her efforts have been very worthwhile and we thank her for choosing LRCC as the benefciary of her charitable act.”
