The continuing generosity to local good causes by patrons of Linlithgow’s Platform 3 has been praised by mine host at the popular hostelry, Ian Gibson.

For the third time in a year cheques for £600 have been handed over to Linlithgow gala day, Linlithgow Reed Band and the Stephen Gallacher Golf Foundation.

Mr Gibson said that the latest donations had come from a couple of the pub’s monthly charity quizzes, a Christmas draw and the weekly National Lottery bonus ball competition.

“We take great pride in having raised tens of thousands of pounds over the years,’’ said Mr Gibson.
