Kintyre raises a cup to World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
The Campbeltown branch of Macmillan Cancer Support’s fundraising team kick-started the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning campaign in Kintyre. The ladies, who regularly hold events to raise funds for the charity which provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer, welcomed guests to Kirk Street Hall on Saturday. The raffle, baking, tombola and merchandise stalls were kept busy by the constant flow of visitors as volunteers rushed around in the kitchen pouring tea and coffee and keeping plates of biscuits topped up. The fundraiser, which made almost £800, was one in a series of events across the UK held on or around September 28 in aid of the charities World’s Biggest Coffee Morning campaign. Joining in and hosting their own events, the Campbeltown Courier will be selling filtered coffee and home baking today (Friday) from 10am, and Glenbarr Stores has a bake sale next Thursday, September 27, from 9am until noon.
