Cof­fee morn­ing raises funds for Ar­ran hospi­tal

The Arran Banner - - News -

The Ar­ran Hospi­tal Sup­port­ers’ League raised more than £800 at its cof­fee morn­ing which was well-at­tended with a happy, fam­ily, com­mu­nity at­mos­phere with peo­ple of all age groups from around the is­land.

The cof­fee morn­ing was held last Satur­day in Whit­ing Bay vil­lage hall. While seek­ing to raise funds for the char­ity, it also ac­com­plished its aim of be­ing an op­por­tu­nity for sup­port­ers to meet and gather and en- joy each oth­ers’ com­pany.

Com­ment­ing on the suc­cess of the event, both fi­nan­cially and so­cially, sec­re­tary Jim Arnold said that the achieve­ment was the re­sult of both the hard work of the com­mit­tee and the sup­port of the com­mu­nity.

He took the op­por­tu­nity to thank all those who had helped to make the event a suc­cess – those who had come along and spent their money and those who had do­nated prizes, home bak­ing and their time.

‘The league’s com­mit­tee is very ap­pre­cia­tive of the sup­port and co-oper­a­tion it re­ceives from the peo­ple and busi­nesses of this is­land and be­yond,’ Mr Arnold added.

The cof­fee morn­ing in­cluded a tombola, home bak­ing and a raf­fle. All of the funds raised are used as grants, do­na­tions or gifts to pro­vide com­fort and help for the pa­tients and staff at the Ar­ran War Memo­rial Hospi­tal in Lam­lash.
