Fundraising for former mineworkers

AN art exhibition is being held to raise money for the Lothian Mineworkers Convalescent Trust.

The work of Scottish artist Moira Maitland will be on show at the Trust’s Whatton Lodge in Gullane.

The exhibition marks the start of an Open Week (May 4-12), when the lodge, its cottage, gardens and allotments will be open to the public.

The trust allows retired miners and their beneficiaries to enjoy a relaxed break or respite on the East Lothian coast.
