A well attended and well supported Mary’s Meals fundraiser held recently at Lamlash Church has raised enough money to feed 75 poor and impoverished children at schools for a year.

At the mid week coffee morning run by volunteers, and with an extensive variety of donated home baking, the volunteers and supporters raised £1,046.02 for the charity.

Alison Page, Mary’s Meals Arran ambassador said: ‘Our Mary’s Meals fundraiser was a great success. Thank you to Natalie of Unfolding Moments for her great photos, the big Co-op,  Brodick Bar & Brasserie, Lamlash Church, Charlotte’s Flowers and Bewitching Beauty on Arran for the fabulous raffle prizes.

‘Thanks too, to the wonderful coffee team led by Patricia Trewby who never stopped all morning and a huge thanks to the bakers, servers, helpers and everyone for coming along to support Mary’s Meals.

‘I never cease to be amazed at the generosity of the Arran folks and those that visit the island. You’re just brilliant,’ Alison added.
