A great day and vi­tal funds raised

Dear Ed­i­tor

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

On Satur­day, Septem­ber 9, Strath­care held its an­nual cof­fee morn­ing in Cri­eff.

Due to ex­cel­lent sup­port our tak­ings in­creased from pre­vi­ous years, rais­ing just over £800!

Apart from en­joy­ing the de­li­cious re­fresh­ments (in­clud­ing scones do­nated by Camp­bells), vis­i­tors bought a wide range of home bak­ing, won some lovely prizes on the tombola, guessed the weight of a Dundee cake, es­ti­mated the num­ber of pas­sen­gers car­ried by Ber­tie over the last year (over 1600!) and tried to guess which whisky was wait­ing to be given to the suc­cess­ful can­di­date! We also raf­fled a beau­ti­fully made quilt which had been do­nated.

Strath­care would like to thank all those not only who at­tended this event, but also who sup­port and help through­out the year.

Ber­tie Bus is a fa­mil­iar sight in and around Cri­eff, and en­ables many peo­ple to en­joy ex­cur­sions, shop­ping trips and keep in touch with friends.

Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of our sup­port­ers over re­cent years, we have been able to place an or­der to re­place Ber­tie who is 10 years old! Watch out for the new bus next spring!
