Dollar couple Bob and Margaret Bonthrone have presented a cheque for £1,175 to The Prostate Cancer Charity.

Bob and Margaret - who raised the sum by organising a coffee morning in Dollar - presented the cheque to the Charity's Head of Scotland Operations, Ann Ferguson, and Chairman, Professor Paul Forster, at a special dinner marking the end of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in Glasgow (photo attached).

Head of Operations at The Prostate Cancer Charity in Scotland, Ann Ferguson, said: "Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men in Scotland. 2,700 Scots are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, and 19,000 are currently living with the disease. In light of these figures every penny raised and every effort made to increase awareness of the disease is to be welcomed.

"Once again Bob and Margaret Bonthrone have done an excellent job on both fronts, and I'm delighted to receive this fantastic sum on behalf of The Prostate Cancer Charity.

"Time and again Bob and Margaret go over and above the call of duty in raising funds for The Prostate Cancer Charity, and I know this is greatly appreciated by everyone at the Charity and the many families it supports across the country."
