A silent auction at The Shore in Whiting Bay has raised more than £850 for the village primary school.
Campbell Laing, tour guide at the Lochranza Distillery, had the idea to reserve a cask to raise money for the ship’s repairs, with £10 from each bottle sold going to the cause. In recognition, Campbell was given bottle number one, which he has now chosen to auction to raise more funds for the Waverley.
The night was attended by close to 100 people, including some Arran locals. Craig had collected a number of prizes for the raffle from businesses on the island making up nearly 30 prizes, and Arran products were the hit of the night. An auction raised more then £600.
The group of students were successful in raising money for the event, so far totalling £1,125.
