Mor­ven’s MS fundrais­ing day

The Oban Times - - Community News -

KIND-HEARTED peo­ple from Morvern raised £1,500 in aid of mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis (MS)

The fundraiser was inspired by Lucy Olsen, who lives with the con­di­tion. She and her friend, Me­gan Whyte, or­gan­ised an af­ter­noon of ac­tiv­i­ties and an evening of par­ty­ing in Locha­line so­cial club.

The pair hosted a mas­sive tombola that proved to be pop­u­lar among fundrais­ers.

Lo­cal res­i­dents and visi­tors also en­joyed hav­ing fun in a photo booth and brows­ing stalls which fea­tured jams, crafts, cush­ions, cheese, home bak­ing and bric-abrac.

Scot­tish sea farms do­nated salmon for the ‘raf­fle and salmon bar­beque’.

Ally Nudds took charge of the lively auc­tion, which in­cluded prizes from the Whitehouse res­tau­rant and Oban Phoenix cin­ema. The crowd fran­ti­cally bid to se­cure their prizes while do­nat­ing to a good cause.

Later Killin-based band, Alpine Road, per­formed free of charge to an au­di­ence at the so­cial club well into the early hours of the next morn­ing. Me­gan and Lucy have said a spe­cial thank you to peo­ple who sup­ported their cause and do­nated prizes.

They said they were ‘over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity shown’ by peo­ple in the com­mu­nity and by those from fur­ther afield.
