The sum has been raised through the charity bookcase at Sumburgh Airport and the funds will be handed over quickly.
The bookcase, a joint initiative between Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd (Hial) and visit Scotland, has been on the go for 5 years. The scheme is operated by visit Scotland information center staff Jan Winter and Gordon Rae, with book contributions coming generally from airport staff, who then select in between themselves which charity ought to benefit each year.
It raises over 100 per month generally and this year the selected excellent cause is Disability Shetland, which will be getting the 1,500 raised throughout the previous year.
Hial and visit Scotland thank all airport staff who support and donate to the bookcase, and constantly welcome any book contributions from outdoors sources as well.
