In­ner Wheel club boosts guides

The Oban Times - - Districts -

Oban In­ner Wheel Club pre­sented a cheque for £2,057.64 to Girl­guid­ing, Oban District, at the town’s Guide Hall. The Girl Guides’ district com­mis­sioner for Oban, Stella McIver, said: ‘A big thank you to the In­ner Wheel for think­ing of us as its cho­sen char­ity. The money will go to­wards up­grad­ing the hall for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.’ In­ner Wheel mem­bers raised the money through a whist drive, a hag­gis night and a spon­sored 10km run in June in Glas­gow. For­mer branch pres­i­dent Ur­sula Parry, who ran the race, ex­plained: ‘ The In­ner Wheel is a women’s or­gan­i­sa­tion and the Girl Guides is a girls’ or­gan­i­sa­tion. This money will help keep the Guide Hall in a healthy state for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.’
