Lamlash joins world’s biggest coffee morning
Lamlash Church volunteers joined thousands of communities, churches and schools across the country taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Rosemary Roberts and a team of volunteers served up an array of sweet treats and teas and coffees to a packed hall of people who went along to support the annual initiative where there were also stalls selling cards, crafts, knitwear and tempting treats to take away.
The event, which was one of several coffee mornings held on the island in support of the charity, raised £368.30.
Organiser Rosemary said: ‘Thank you to everyone who contributed by donating and helping out on the day. We could not have raised the fantastic sum without the kind help of everyone involved.’
Macmillan coffee mornings, now in their 27th year, saw 6,665 coffee mornings taking place across Scotland last year, raising more than £2.3 million for the charity.
Organisers are hoping to build on this success with the cumulative amount raised over the 27 years exceeding £200 million.
Supporters enjoy a cup of tea and cakes at the Lamlash Church hall.
Visitors had plenty of tasty treats and home baking to select from.
Volunteers did a roaring trade at the tombola stall.
