Ham­per raf­fle boosts can­cer care char­ity by £500

The Oban Times - - News -

AN AC­TIVE com­mu­nity mem­ber has raised £ 500 for Macmil­lan nurses this win­ter with her fifth ham­per raf­fle.

Iso­bel MacPhee, 72, has been fundrais­ing for the char­ity for five years now.

Speak­ing to The Oban Times Iso­bel said: ‘I fundraise ev­ery year for Macmil­lan nurses, raf­fling off a ham­per, which usu­ally has a bot­tle of al­co­hol, tinned goods, sweets. This year I got a bot­tle of whisky from John MacMil­lan the butcher and then I pro­vide the rest.

‘I go round the com­mu­nity cen­tres, pubs, the auc­tion mart, any­where I think peo­ple will buy tick­ets.

‘I get a lot of sup­port from peo­ple in the area so I would like to thank all those who did buy tick­ets this year.’

Iso­bel said the nurses were ‘de­lighted’ to re­ceive the gen­er­ous cheque.
