Oban Inner Wheel is still in action despite the current lockdown, with two local charities benefiting from their fundraising efforts.

As a result of a very successful Chilli Quiz night held in Taynuilt prior to lockdown, the sum of £1,130 raised to support The MacMillan Day Bed Unit at Lorn and Islands Hospital.

The Day Bed Unit was Oban Inner Wheels chosen charity of the year in memory of late dear friend and member, Julie Beamish, who benefitted from the excellent service and support provided by the staff.

Inner Wheel members are very grateful to all those who attended and supported the function, and especially to Tony Cave who was an excellent quiz master.

The donation will be used for improving the environment in the unit and enhancing the comfort of patients.

Oban Inner wheel also recognised the valuable work that Hope Kitchen
IS providing to the local community with a donation of £250.
