Fishermen's Mission Benefits from MSP's Survey

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson paid a visit to the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen in Peterhead on Friday to present a cheque for £100 to Mission funds.

The MSP recently took part on an opinion survey for market research company MORI which offered a fee for taking part. Mr Stevenson opted to donate his fee to local good causes and on this occasion it was the Peterhead Mission who benefited.

During his visit to the Mission, Mr Stevenson was briefed by Superintendent Steve Murray and Chairman Ross Gordon on the support work carried out there.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“It was good to catch up with the Mission once again. My first ever public engagement as an MSP after I was elected in 2001 took place at the Peterhead Mission so it is a special place for me.

“I was delighted to be able to contribute in a small way towards the good work which the Mission does. I get asked to take part on three or four of these type of surveys every year which normally pay a fee and I always like to nominate a local worthy cause to benefit from the fee.

“It was very useful as well to hear from Superintendent Steve Murray about the current work of the Mission and, of course, the preparations for the annual Open Day which will be taking place once again in August.”
