A big thank you to everyone, who baked, nurtured their plants, made sandwiches, provided gifts, manned the stalls, served the food, tidied up and of course to all of you who came and spent your money! We made £802.60!
Achnamara Hall and North Knapdale Church joined together in their annual lunch and Christmas craft fair.There were some lovely goods on offer at the craft tables. Mary’s knitted decorations sold well.Fraser has published a book and was tying up his sales beautifully.Jane had a distinctive array of baskets and honey for sale. Lynne had some pretty hand painted Christmas decorations on her table.Jan’s paintings were popular, as was Nick’s puffer table in the background.A good time was had by one and all. Almost £600 was raised to be shared between the hall and church. Thanks to everyone who baked, cooked soup, made crafts and all those of you who came along to support these two good causes.
In September, Ron’s Ramblers are planning to be the first group of walkers to pioneer a new long distance walk through Mid-Argyll called the Columba Route. The Heart of Argyll Tourism Alliance has already registered the route with the Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum as a Pilgrimage Walk, linking the Kintyre Way (Tarbert) with Oban and Lismore. It will again be a sponsored walk, this time raising funds for Mary’s Meals. They have an open invitation to all and hope that people will join them, either as walkers on at least one of the stages, or helping with the organisation and provision of accommodation. They will be joined by the Mid-Argyll Ramblers. Ron’s Ramblers are very appreciative of all of the donations they have received over the years and would be very grateful for any donation you are able to give to Mary’s Meals.
As part of this pilgrimage there will be a communion service in Kilmory Chapel on Monday 11 September at 10 am.
A few more donations have been handed in which raises our total to £1122.63. Libby has said she would retire from organising the coffee morning when she reached £1000. Well done Libby! You have reached your goal…..Now all we need is a volunteer to take over the reigns. Libby will always be on hand to help and support you. Please contact any of the elders if you would like to consider taking on this role.
Well done everyone.
There was a grand total of £1067.73 raised for church funds today at our annual summer coffee morning. A big thank you to everyone who produced, who helped and who came and supported this event.
