Staff at the Scottish SPCA staff are to remember Leuchars woman Maureen Bannister with a special ceilidh in her memory.

Maureen Bannister from Leuchars worked at the charity’s animal rescue and rehoming centre at Petterden for 10 years and the team were devastated by her unexpected death in December.

Coreen Hill, animal rescue officer, who worked with Maureen at the centre for several years, said, “My colleague Lori Downie and I have been organising the evening in memory of Maureen.

“There will be a ceilidh at the Forfar Mart on April 16 nd tickets cost £10 each.

‘‘We are trying to raise enough money for a memorial bench at Tentsmuir Beach, where Maureen was found – this was one of her favourite spots to walk her dog. Any funds raised over and above the cost of the bench will be donated to the Scottish SPCA because Maureen absolutely loved animals and spent 10 years doing a fantastic job for us.”
