Hor­ri­fy­ing Hal­lowe’en event at Co-op raises char­ity cash

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

DED­I­CATED staff held a Hal­lowe’en bake sale and raf­fle in the draughty foyer of Lochgilp­head’s Co-op su­per­mar­ket.

As well as a tempt­ing ar­ray of de­li­ciously hor­ri­ble cakes, there was a fan­tas­tic ham­per avail­able as the top prize in the raf­fle.

Bravely man­ning the stall un­der the guid­ance of store man­ager Cal­lum Craw­ford were Rochelle McCon­nell, Vic­to­ria MacVicar, Anne Liv­ingston and Mhairi MacVicar, ably as­sisted by Mhairi’s daugh­ter Katie. The event, on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 28 raised £500 to be split be­tween Cash for Kids and one of the char­i­ties that ap­plied for com­mu­nity fund­ing but were un­suc­cess­ful this time.
