LUCKY shopper Eric Davidson enjoyed a shopping trip with a difference at The Co-operative Food’s Macaulay Road store in Stornoway – a three minute trolley dash around the aisles.

Eric, from Back, won the trolley dash as first prize in a raffle organised by the store in aid of local charities.

With help from two members of staff, Karen Chisholm and Angela Robertson, Eric managed to fill four trolleys, with items worth around £450.

Store manager Steven Cooper said: “The trolley dash was a great success and really good fun.

“It was a tremendous way to round off what has been a busy year of fundraising, and we would like to thank all our customers who have generously helped as well.”

The raffle, with other prizes including a £200 Co-operative Food voucher and a Christmas hamper worth £100, raised over £4,500 which will be split between three charities – Bethesda Care Home and Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support and Alzheimer Scotland.

It was the final event of a year of fundraising by the store, which in total raised around £12,000 for the three charities.
