The Corran Halls was packed on Saturday for the Lego Club’s table-top sale.

The sell-out event was full with stallholders who had beauty supplies, household goods, DVDs and a host of other items on display.

The sale was organised by Fee Shaw, who runs the Master Builders Lego and Creative Construction Club in Oban.

One notable stall involved two tables filled with cakes, run by seven-year-old Eilidh Lawson.

The Park Primary pupil was raising money to help find a cure for a cancer.
Eilidh, who had 10 inches chopped off her hair earlier this year for charity, decided to raise money through her baking skills after four members of her family were diagnosed with cancer in the past six months.

Fee said: ‘It’s going well. We have got a good mix – that’s the feedback we have been getting. I just wanted to do it because there’s nothing in the area like it. No one seems to do car boot sales because of the weather.’

The price of hosting a stall, and any donations collected, went to the Lego Club. The club meets twice each month at the Rockfield Centre and allows children, and adults, to let their imaginations run free. The club also hosts themed events, such as women in engineering.

Fee explained that the club brings children of all ages together: ‘It’s a six-year-old explaining to a four-year-old about how a lighthouse keeps boats away,’ she said.

The next Master Builders Lego and Creative Con­struction Club will take place on July 14 from 10am to noon.

Following the sale, Eilidh’s mum said she had raised £838.25 for Cancer Research UK and MacMillan Nurses so far.
