LOCAL fundraising for the proposed national curling academy at Kinross is off to a flying start.

A barbecue at Loch Leven’s Larder next Friday is already a sell-out.

And fundraiser Linda Young has been delighted with the support forthcoming from local businesses.

She said the academy would prove a major asset to Kinross in years to come.

Linda added: “This is our first local fundraising venture and we have enjoyed great support from the business community.

“Loch Leven’s Larder has provided the venue and all the money raised next Friday will boost the funds.

“We are also launching a fund-raising raffle, with a car as the top prize.”
