Mrs Dale said: "This amazing amount has been raised due to the generosity of local people and businesses. Thank you all very much"
Her youth fund is aiming to
raise enough money to buy Ballwalls for Gaymer's Meadow and the recreation ground, and possibly provide youth shelters too.
One Ballwall has been installed in London Road using money from Grampian Foods, given via Overboard, and is being well used by youngsters already.
