It was eyes down for a full house at a prize bingo and raffle in aid of the Kintyre Maternity Services Users Group.

Last Thursday evening’s event at Argyll Bowling Club raised essential money for the maternity unit but the amount raised had not been revealed by the time the Courier went to press.

The following evening, Campbeltown Bowling Club hosted a quiz and gin tasting evening in aid of Kintyre Pipe Band Association.

Quiz master Helen Gilchrist kept visitors’ brains working as Emma Macalister Hall and Su Black from Beinn an Tuirc Distillers, the band’s sponsor, served up bramble berry cocktails.

The event raised £608.
