A literary gift for Disability Shetland
Booklovers’ donations have helped raised £1,500 for Disability Shetland.
The sum has been raised through the charity bookcase at Sumburgh Airport and the funds will be handed over soon.
The bookcase, a joint initiative between Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd (Hial) and VisitScotland, has been on the go for five years. The scheme is operated by VisitScotland information centre staff Jan Winter and Gordon Rae, with book contributions coming mainly from airport staff, who then choose between themselves which charity should benefit each year.
It raises over £100 per month on average and this year the chosen good cause is Disability Shetland, which will be receiving the £1,500 raised during the past year.
Hial and VisitScotland thank all airport staff who support and donate to the bookcase, and always welcome any book contributions from outside sources as well.
