A SWIMSUIT donated to the Huntly Marie Curie group by swimmer Hannah Miley has splashed the cash for the charity and is set to raise even more money.

The top bidder, who paid £800 for the item gifted by the Commonwealth and Olympic swimmer, has donated it back to the charity in appreciation of the work which its nurses do for people in the last weeks and days of their lives.

Huntly FC, who chose Marie Curie as their 2016 charity of the year, offered to auction the item at their annual lunch believing there would be a keen group of bidders.

Steve Innes was auctioneer and managed to get bidding off to a sound start. The suit was knocked out at £800 to Huntly FC director Billy Walker.

At a recent home game representatives of the charity collected the £800 and were left astounded when Mr Walker generously gifted the framed and signed clothing worn by the Commonwealth Games gold medallist back to them.

Jenny Longhurst a member of the group said: “It was exceptionally generous of Mr Walker to pay what he did for the swimsuit, we were delighted with that total, but to now have the opportunity to have it raise more money for Marie Curie is fantastic. We really appreciate his gesture.”

A modest Mr Walker said that he hoped the group could maximise the original donation from the Inverurie swimmer.

He said: “I had personal experience 16 years ago of the work Marie Curie do and the difference they can make to families. I am happy to be able to support the Huntly group.”

Helen Cox a member of the Huntly group secured the swimsuit for the charity from the athlete’s mum whom she knows.

The donation came just after the Olympic Games where Miley narrowly missed out on the bronze medal in the women’s 400m individual medley.
