A regular contingent of charity fundraisers boosted Cancer Research UK funds.

The Kintyre committee of the national cancer research and awareness charity, which aims to reduce the number of deaths from cancer, hosted a coffee morning last Saturday.

The Campbeltown Town Hall event featured an extensive raffle as well as bottle and baking stalls.

The usual selfless volunteers manned stalls and served tea, coffee, juice and biscuits to visitors of all ages.

The tables at the event, which raised £665.35, were beautifully decorated with flowers.
