Maybe the sunshine kept folk from arriving early to Lochgilphead Parish Church Hall, but when they did decide to go along to the coffee morning, they came in their droves.

The fundraising event, for the Mid Argyll branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), saw the hall become packed with folk enjoying the usual delicious home baking, tea and coffee.

The morning’s work by fundraisers on Saturday June 2 managed to collect £525 for the RNLI through entrance money, a raffle and the sale of RNLI branded goods.

Secretary of the Mid Argyll RNLI branch, Eunice Salmon, spoke to the Argyllshire Advertiser to appeal for more volunteers to come forward to help the branch.

Eunice said: ‘We are keen to recruit more people from Mid Argyll to help the vital work of the RNLI. Living in an area like this, surrounded by sea, it is vitally important that the work of the RNLI is supported.’

If you would like to lend a hand, call Eunice on 01546 600486.
