The Oban Times - - Districts -

THE AN­NUAL open day at Ice Fac­tor Kinlochleven, raised £726 for char­i­ties, in­clud­ing Down’s Syn­drome Scot­land.

The pro­ceeds will also help pay for Santa's an­nual visit to meet vil­lage chil­dren.

Around 200 peo­ple at­tended the open day on Satur­day June 24 when at­trac­tions in­cluded ice- climb­ing, stalls, chil­dren’s face paint­ing and a raf­fle.

Kay Mc­Duff from Kinlochleven and her 13-year- old son Mark, who has Down’s syn­drome, is a lead­ing light in the fundrais­ing drive for Down’s Syn­drome Scot­land.

Kay said: ‘Thanks to a huge com­mu­nity-led ef­fort, we raised much-needed funds for Down’s Syn­drome Scot­land and a num­ber of other char­i­ties.’

Tracey Smith, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor at Ice Fac­tor Kinlochleven, said: ‘The open day gives lo­cal char­i­ties the op­por­tu­nity to come to­gether to raise funds for causes close to their heart. Ice Fac­tor is proud that since Jan­uary this year, £2,186 has been raised for worth­while causes, in­clud­ing Down’s Syn­drome Scot­land.’
