CAL­MAC staff in Mal­laig have raised £ 500 for MS So­ci­ety Scot­land.

Se­nior port as­sis­tant Julie MacRae and port as­sis­tant Paul Mof­fat baked cakes, tray bakes and other sweet treats and per­suaded oth­ers at the port and in the wider com­mu­nity to do the same for the mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis char­ity.

The homemade pro­duce proved pop­u­lar with trav­ellers head­ing across the wa­ter to or from the Small Isles, Skye and South Uist.

Both Julie and Paul, who gave up their day off to run the stall at Cal­Mac’s port of­fice, have been rais­ing money for the char­ity since last year.

Julie said: ‘We couldn’t be­lieve how busy we were. Peo­ple were re­ally keen, not only to get their hands on a cake or two, but also to hear more about the im­por­tant work of the MS so­ci­ety, a key driver in re­search and sup­port for this de­bil­i­tat­ing con­di­tion.’

Paul added: ‘Ev­ery­one was very kind with their feed­back about the bak­ing. It was re­ally pop­u­lar and we are so grate­ful for all the sup­port we re­ceived. We had so much bak­ing to sell and were amazed we sold out.’
