Argyll Wellbeing Hub donned its fundraising hat on Friday, September 24 when taking part in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The event was well supported with people donating home baking, raffle prizes, bunting, flowers and even tea sets and tablecloths to make the event extra special.

Cafe Shore donated lots of cakes too and tea and coffee for the day while Marks and Spencer donated cakes and raffle prizes.

People also donated their time with a group of Oban High School young people helping to serve up. Peppa Pig and Mickey Mouse even popped in to say hello and then went around Oban to tell people it was on.

Wellbeing Hub service coordinator Lorraine King said: ‘This is a cause very close to us as some of our members use the Macmillan unit at the Lorn and Isles hospital regularly and we see what an amazing job the staff there all do first hand.

‘We would like to thank everyone who contributed to making it such a brilliant event and who helped to raise much needed funds for such a worthy cause.’

The final total raised was £600, which included £100 from Maree at Peedie Bakery.
