A ROSS-SHIRE community rallied round when the call came to help a special school close to many hearts.

A collection, tribute night and raffle instigated by a local business provided a welcome £702 fundraising boost to St Clement's in Dingwall.

The Hen House bar on the town's Hill Street set up a large empty whisky bottle to collect change from well-wishers.

A further collection was made at a Shania Twain tribute night which also benefited from a raffle supported by many other local businesses who offered prizes.

The bar's owner Robert Inglis has been a supporter of the school which offers special education to a wide catchment area around the county town.

Supervisor Kevin Lamond was on hand to pass on the proceeds. He said: "We had a bottle on the bar and a tribute and raffle. Everybody chipped in. We're delighted to help and may do something similar again."

School head teacher Toni Macartney said: "I really appreciate everything they are doing and all the support from the community in Dingwall. It means a lot."
