The Oban Times - - News -

Thou­sands of pounds raised at a char­ity con­cert in April have been handed over to Cancer Re­search UK and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Neil ‘Nonny’ MacInnes and his wife Karen, land­lords of Coast­ers in Oban, raised £14,000 from their third char­ity con­cert, We’ll Walk This Road To­gether, in the Cor­ran Halls. The line-up fea­tured Man­ran, Skip­pin­ish, Trail West, and lo­cal band Ceol An Aire, and 100 per cent of the 750 ticket sales were do­nated to the char­i­ties. Two cheques worth £6,000 were pre­sented each to Cancer Re­search UK and Marie Curie Cancer Care at Coast­ers last Fri­day, and a third cheque for £2,000 will be given to Oban Hos­pice. The cou­ple set up the DMI Cancer Trust, hav­ing seen mem­bers of their fam­ily strug­gle with the dis­ease. Nonny thanked ev­ery­body who con­trib­uted.
