Ardchattan Community Council would like to thank everyone involved in the recent ‘Random Act of Kindness’ deliveries which took place on September 23.

This project was continued from lockdown with the help of the Masonic Lodge and local volunteers.

A very kind donation from Lodge St Modan 985 (Taynuilt) was used to provide fish and chips to many households in the Benderloch, Barcaldine and North Connel area.

Nominations were received and in total 24 people received a delivery of Tralee Bay Fish and Chips to their doors. The idea behind the project was to spread kindness, help to combat social isolation and loneliness by sharing community spirit and ultimately to make people smile after what has been a very tough year so far.

The Community Council are very grateful to the local volunteer drivers who ensured everyone received their deliveries piping hot and without whom the event would not have been possible.

Special thanks also to Angela and Paul at Tralee Bay Fish and Chips for providing a fantastic service and for their kind gesture and donation of a piece of cake along with each of the orders.
