Charitable crowds took shelter in Kirk Street’s Red Cross Hall as the rain poured down outside.

The hall was host to a coffee morning in aid of the Mairi Semple Fund, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, on Saturday October 7.

The fund is dedicated to providing financial assistance for people with cancer living in Kintyre and Gigha, and making donations to the cancer treatment centres accessed by them.

Volunteers poured coffee and manned a variety of stalls selling raffle tickets, baking and produce.

‘Horses’ were also sold for the fund’s race night, to be held in Argyll Bowling Club on November 10.

Mairi Semple chairwoman, Pauline Simpson, said: ‘The total made at the coffee morning after taking off expenses was £570.62.  The big raffle will be drawn at the Race Night on Friday, November 10th.
