Char­ity raf­fle boost for the Beat­son

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A con­sid­er­able dona­tion has been made to the fundrais­ing raf­fle for the Beat­son.

Mem­bers of Lodge Loch Fyne re­cently raised £300 for the grand Christ­mas raf­fle on be­half of the Beat­son Can­cer Cen­tre, or­gan­ised by Lochgilp­head women Yvie Young and Maria MacKen­zie.

Mem­bers of the hol­i­day ren­tal home de­cided to chip in when they heard of Mid Ar­gyll Hos­pi­tal nurse Yvie Young and Icon Hair­dress­ing owner Maria MacKen­zie’s at­tempt to give back to the Beat­son af­ter they each spent time in the fa­cil­ity get­ting treated with ra­dio­ther­apy.

‘It’s so calm and re­laxed, it is like a spa,’ Maria said. ‘The Beat­son is just a spe­cial place, so we wanted to put some­thing back.’

Lodge Loch Fyne mem­bers Tommy An­gus, Jimmy McCal­lum and Master of the Lodge Don­ald Craw­ford do­nated their cheque to the raf­fle.

Don­ald said: ‘It’s a cause very close to my own heart and I wish them ev­ery suc­cess.’

Tick­ets for the raf­fle, which will be drawn on Christ­mas Eve, are now on sale and avail­able from Maria, Yvie, Icon Hair­dress­ing and Sei Bella.

Jimmy McCal­lum, Maria Macken­zie, Don­ald Craw­ford, Yvie Young and Tommy An­gus.
