Caol gala day boost

The Oban Times - - News -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS of Caol Gala Day have a plan to ease their bur­den and raise cash for oth­ers.

This year’s event, which is self-funded with the prof­its be­ing rein­vested for the next year, takes place on June 24.

Kirsty Kyle, trea­surer of Caol Com­mu­nity Coun­cil (CCC), who leads the fundrais­ing ef­forts, has al­ready raised the £6,000 re­quired for the day.

Along­side Kirsty, a small, hard­work­ing com­mit­tee is re­spon­si­ble for or­gan­is­ing food, en­ter­tain­ment, stalls and en­sur­ing ev­ery­thing goes as smoothly as pos­si­ble on the day.

Jane Young, chair­per­son for CCC, ex­plained at the coun­cil’s meet­ing on May 8 that or­gan­is­ing and man­ning the stalls can be a strug­gle due to a lack of vol­un­teers. Mrs Young sug­gested CCC reach out to schools, char­i­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions to in­vite them to host a stall.

‘This is an op­por­tu­nity for them to raise money for their own com­mu­nity or project.’
