Oban teenager Megan Evans said ‘cheers’ to restaurant owner and sommelier David Lapsley for organising a wine tasting night in aid of a volunteering mission to Chile.

The evening on Easter Monday at the Etive restaurant in Stevenson Street, Oban, helped raise £160 towards Megan’s trip in August when she will fly out to teach English to disadvantaged youngsters.

She needs £6,000 and so far has raised about £2,000 but has plans for more fundraising, including a bingo night.

‘It was a great night at Etive. Everyone enjoyed it. I’m very grateful to David for giving his support,’ said Megan.
