Record attendance at Comrie Christmas Lights coffee morning
A RECORD attendance at the coffee morning to raise money for Comrie’s Christmas lights display raised £611 on Saturday.
“This was the first fundraising event of the year,” said organiser Bob McEwan, “and if this response continues at future events we will be very pleased.
“We still need more money to make our lights as successful as they have been in the past but we are well on the way.
“Thanks must go to all concerned.”
And, Mr McEwan was full of praise for the members of Crieff High School Pipe Band who performed outside the White Church where the coffee morning was held.
He added: “It is particularly pleasing to report that the young pipers, under pipe major Craig Sutherland, who organised everything in a very professional manner, all participated in the spirit of the event and even cleared away tables and chairs at the end. With that attitude they are bound to prosper.”
The next fundraiser for the Christmas lights will be at the Comrie Fortnight street market on July 24 where the lights committee will have a stall with new “special interest” attractions.
