Almost £2,000 was raised for Alzheimer’s Scotland and Lochaber Foodbank by a ceilidh in memory of great local box player Alex Maclean of South Uist/Caol.

The event, which saw a total, so far, of £1,915, was held at Kilmallie Community Centre, Corpach, on Saturday March 16.

Mr Maclean’s daughter, Catriona, told the Lochaber Times: ‘The night was a great success. Dad’s brother, Donald Angus Maclean, was there on the night to take part and his two sisters were also able to be there, along with many other family members and friends.’
