Ladies who lunch raise more than £1,000 for Marie Curie

The Oban Times - - News -

NINETY Lochaber ladies sat down to a fundrais­ing lunch which raised more than £1,000 for Marie Curie.

The women got to­gether at the Alexan­dra Ho­tel on Satur­day June 17 to help raise money for the char­ity that helps fam­i­lies with end- of-life care.

The event got off to a sparkling start with a glass of bub­bly from the ho­tel and a se­lec­tion of fab­u­lous cock­tails pro­vided free of charge by Ali Smith of The Tav­ern Res­tau­rant.

Through­out the af­ter­noon, as well as en­joy­ing a tasty two- course meal and cof­fee, there were en­ter­tain­ing games, or­gan­ised by com­pere Linda Camp­bell, and a Neal’s Yard Reme­dies beauty demon­stra­tion by Maja Kusz-Massie.

The af­ter­noon ended with a su­perb raf­fle, with more than a dozen bril­liant prizes. Each guest was also given a yel­low-themed cup­cake, do­nated by lo­cal ar­ti­san bak­ers, to rep­re­sent Marie Curie.

Joan MacK­in­tosh of the group told the Lochaber

Times: ‘ We are grate­ful to The Alexan­dra Ho­tel, The Tav­ern Res­tau­rant, West­ern Isles Cruises, Mor­risons, Lidl, Boots, Lloyds Fort Wil­liam, The Gran­ite House, McDon­ald Broth­ers, Venus Beauty Sa­lon, Christo­pher MacPher­son at Nevis Range, Swell Cakes, Lynne’s Bake­house, Cup­pacakes, Cakes by Cather­ine, Laura MacGillivray, Linda Camp­bell, Flem­ing and Flem­ing, Semi Chem and many other in­di­vid­u­als who gave prizes and their time to make the event such a suc­cess.’

It is hoped the event may be­come an an­nual one.
