Following a successful coffee morning in Lamlash, volunteers from the Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) hosted a second fundraising event, this time in Brodick Hall.

The coffee mornings help support COAST’s marine conservation efforts and they also provide like-minded individuals with an opportunity to meet and enjoy the social interaction, with an added attraction of delicious home baking.

Piping hot refreshments were appreciated on the blustery day and visitors enjoyed a wide selection of treats to go with their drinks. Visitors and supporters also enjoyed the musical talents of Alice Maxwell and Dave Simpkin who played the violin and the guitar and who helped create a social and relaxing atmosphere.

COAST volunteers ensured that everyone was well fed and taken care of and the group plan to host a further coffee morning in the next few months for the residents of the north end at  Lochranza and Catacol Village Hall.

Volunteers Cheryl and Nick Burgess welcomed the visitors and assisted with the coffee morning. 01_B07COAST01
