Friends of Oban Hospice held another bingo night on Saturday, raising more than £1,000 for the town’s Dove Centre.
Bingo caller Harry MacMaster was in excellent form as usual and his enthusiasm and personality contributed to the convivial atmosphere in the Argyllshire Gathering Halls, with old and new friends clearly enjoying each other’s company.
In his welcoming remarks, Friends chairman Iain MacIntyre again paid tribute to the generosity of the local community in their support of the Dove Centre, emphasising this support extended well beyond the town. He made special mention of outlying areas and the islands, in particular Mull, where a Miss MacLean, on her own initiative, has raised more than £8,000 for the charity.
Iain also complimented his hard-working committee, in particular Carol Bain and David Evans, who organised the bingo event. Amanda MacPhail, who runs the Argyllshire Gathering Halls was also thanked for her ongoing support of Oban’s hospice movement.
