A well attended coffee morning in aid of the RNLI has helped to raise £650 for the Arran rescue organisation.

Last Saturday supporters filled the Ormidale Pavilion in Brodick where they enjoyed tea, coffee and home baking and an opportunity to catch up on all the local news with their friends.

Adding to the attraction a tempting array of loaves and baked treats were available to purchase, a popular tombola, with alluring prizes, raised further funds and provided supporters with the chance to win one of the donated prizes on offer.

Visitors to the event, who are also keen gardeners, had the opportunity to snap up one of the very few New Zealand watermelon plants which were available for a nominal price.
