Wedding cash for Angus Carers

NEWLY-MARRIED Lyndsey McWhirter and husband Dave decided not to follow the usual tradition of receiving gifts from their guests but asked instead for donations to be made to causes close to their hearts.

Lyndsey’s nephew was diagnosed with Autism when he was three years old and his mum, Susan, regularly attends the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) parents’ peer support group run by Angus Carers Centre in partnership with Parent to Parent.

Staff and some members from the group came along to thank Lyndsey and Dave for their kind donation of £200 which will be used to support the activities of the group.

An equal amount was donated to Arthritis Research UK as Dave’s mum suffered from chronic arthritis prior to her death.
