Carrick goes coffee morning crazy

Coffee mornings were held across South Ayrshire on Friday to raise money for Macmillan Nurses on national big coffee morning day.

The area hosted many coffee mornings raising a laudable sum for the charity.

The Macmillan Nurses Coffee Morning in the Carrick Centre involving all of the town’s churches was a most enjoyable affair raising £600 for the charity.

The organisers were again very grateful for the support offered by Carrick Academy which provided, through its home economics department, tasty scones and also allowed the involvement of a number of senior pupils.

They were as usual very helpful and pleasant serving coffee and tea but excelled themselves at the end of the morning when they cleared and cleaned the tables before stacking them neatly in cupboards.

As Secretary of the Centre Board Roy Birnie said - “that was well beyond the call of duty”.

There were also coffee mornings at Invergarven School in Girvan, and Maidens, Barr and Minishant.

At Invergarven Primary the senior group arranged and prepared the coffee morning and raised a total of £222.50 for the charity.

And once again it’s a big thank you to the people in Barr and the surrounding area who supported the annual MacMillan Coffee morning held in Barr Hall on the Friday morning. A large raffle of food hampers and floral arrangements encouraged guests to spend their money.

The well stocked sales table including home made dumpling, cakes, jams, chutneys and crafts was also well supported.

A separate raffle for the visiting school children brought a smile to the winners’ faces.

The excellent sum of £765.20 has been forwarded to MacMillan Cancer Care to help continue their important work.
