Morven’s MS fundraising day
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.
