Fam­ily of char­ity hero Nonny hand over cheques

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Cheques for £7,000 were handed over to cancer sup­port char­i­ties from the or­gan­is­ers of a fundrais­ing foot­ball and fam­ily fun day for We Will Walk This Road To­gether. Karen MacInnes, right, along­side daugh­ter Jenna, left, handed over the cheques, with John Scott, cen­tre, the main or­gan­iser of the event, over­see­ing the ex­change. Lil­lian Ker­mode ac­cepted the cheque on be­half of Marie Curie while June Pearson ac­cepted the Cancer Re­search UK dona­tion. A fur­ther dona­tion will be made to Oban Hospice once the ac­counts are fi­nalised. Towns­folk were shocked ear­lier this year when one of the found­ing mem­bers of the char­ity, Nonny MacInnes, died af­ter a bat­tle with cancer. Nonny, Karen, Jenna, Kirsty and Rhoda MacInnes, and a team of vol­un­teers and musicians, ran a num­ber of hugely suc­cess­ful con­certs in the Cor­ran Halls, sup­port­ing Cancer Re­search, Oban Hospice and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
