The Oban Times - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Friends of Oban Hos­pice raised more than £1,500 for the town’s Dove Cen­tre at its an­nual flower ar­rang­ing de­mon­stra­tion at the Ar­gyll­shire Gath­er­ing Halls on Sun­day Novem­ber 18.

The event was co-or­di­nated by long-stand­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber Kath­leen Black who, as usual, had ev­ery­thing down to a ‘T’.

The de­mon­stra­tion was by San­dra Halkett, from El­gin, who cap­ti­vated the ca­pac­ity au­di­ence with her artistry and sto­ry­telling. San­dra’s end prod­ucts were stun­ning and were raf­fled at the end of the event.

The crowd also en­joyed af­ter­noon tea, sand­wiches and home-bak­ing, do­nated by com­mit­tee mem­bers and their friends and fam­i­lies.

In his vote of thanks, chair­man Iain MacIn­tyre, in ad­di­tion to com­ple­ment­ing San­dra on her pro­fes­sional and en­ter­tain­ing de­mon­stra­tion, paid tribute to his hard-work­ing com­mit­tee and the gen­eros­ity of the lo­cal com­mu­nity in sup­port­ing the hos­pice move­ment.
