Laven­der tea fundraiser was heaven ‘scent’

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Peo­ple were queu­ing up for Hope Kitchen’s laven­der after­noon tea at the week­end, writes Kathie Grif­fiths.

Word got out about the laven­der le­mon­ade, home­made scones, cakes and dainty sand­wiches served up on best china and the event made £532.80.

Even those who could not get there and missed out on the tasty treats made do­na­tions on­line. A chunk of the pro­ceeds will be go­ing to Andy’s Man Club to help sup­port its sui­cide pre­ven­tion work. The club meets at Hope Kitchen on a Mon­day at 7pm.

‘We had a lovely laven­der after­noon tea. Thanks to every­one who came and sup­ported and en­joyed it, and to all who do­nated on­line,’ said Hope ser­vice man­ager Lor­raine MacCormick.

Oban am­bas­sador Kay MacDon­ald kindly lent out her trea­sured col­lec­tion of china tea sets for the oc­ca­sion; she has 27 of them. Mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment came cour­tesy of The Catalina Sis­ters.

Paul and Rachel Smith from Pre­ston cel­e­brated their fifth wed­ding an­niver­sary with a laven­der tea at Hope Kitchen served by Lor­raine MacCormick and Fiona Fer­ris.

Lorna MacCorquo­dale, Mairi MacGil­livray and Shanna Lau­rie are served by Aidan MacLeod and Jessie Scott at the Laven­der Tea.
