Top prizes including a voucher for Portavadie Spa helped Carradale primary parents raise £1030 at a bingo night.

Lots of local businesses were very generous and other prizes included a valet voucher for Campbeltown Motors, a whole side of salmon from MOWI and vouchers for Inveraray Jail.

One of the organisers, Emma Macalister Hall, said: ‘We were amazed by the turn out and had to get extra tables and chairs and we also ran out of raffle tickets.

‘Cassie MacDougall did a brilliant job of calling and Fiona Lavery Jones sponsored her an extra tenner if she managed not to swear which she miraculously did.

‘The proceeds will be used to improve the school’s outdoor activity area and also for transport costs incurred for school trips.’
