Businesses dived in to support a races night at the Burnett Arms Hotel, raising over £2200 for Banchory Beavers Amateur Swim Club (BBASC).
A spokesperson said: ‘‘BBASC would like to thank SBS Construction, Homeclean cleaning services, Landform landscape gardeners, Caldwell and Dempster, Duncan’s of Banchory & McIntosh Plant Hire for their great support, as well as the Burnett Arms for sponsoring the whole event.
‘‘A big thank you also to Borsalino restaurant, Buchanan’s Bistro, Chatterbox, Cook and Dine, Dee Larder, Deeside Dance Centre, Deeside Photographics, Dee’s Teas, DFS Intersport, Echt Tandoori, Health & Human Performance Centre, Laidlaw Butcher, Milton of Crathes, Mitchell’s Hardware, Out There, Taylors of Banchory, Tesco and Zen.
‘‘The club tries to keep fees down to keep opportunities open to all.
‘‘However, as with all swimming clubs, it faces high outgoings owing to the cost of pool hire.
