The Galloway News - - FRONT PAGE - Stu­art Gille­spie

Mad Hat­ters galore de­scended on Kirkcud­bright for a fab­u­lous tea party.

And they helped pour more than £1,000 into a char­ity’s cof­fers. Sup­porter Bar­bara Ad­di­son is pic­tured above at the event, which was held in the Selkirk Arms.

A very im­por­tant date in Kirkcud­bright raised more than £1,000 for a can­cer char­ity.

Irene Mitchell or­gan­ised a fun Mad Hat­ter’s Tea Party in the town’s Selkirk Arms last week to ben­e­fit Mag­gie’s Cen­tres.

Around 50 peo­ple joined in and as well as en­joy­ing af­ter­noon tea, there was also a raf­fle and a fash­ion show be­fore the fan­tas­tic hats were auc­tioned off.

Irene, from Kirkcud­bright, said: “It was ab­so­lutely fab­u­lous and I’ve had very pos­i­tive feed­back.

“We raised £1,300, which was amaz­ing. I can’t thank ev­ery­one enough, it was a su­per day.”

She added: “It is amaz­ing how ev­ery­one comes to­gether to muck in.

“My sis­ter does so much work I’m sure when she sees my name com­ing up on her phone she won­ders what I’m af­ter next!”

Thanks go to the Selkirk Arms and also Lind­say Line and the Cor­ner Gallery, who or­gan­ised the fash­ion show.
