Coffee Morning

On Saturday 26th May the Day Centre had its spring coffee morning and with tickets priced at only £2 it was a real bargain. A beautiful day dawned and it looked just perfect for folks to be out and about.

The proceedings started at 11am with an Announcement from Alisin thanking everyone for making the effort to come along and join the fun.

There was plenty of home baking, from yogurt loaves, scones and pancakes to marmalade and lemon curd.  Not forgetting the obligatory tablet. Some made by the staff from the kitchen and also some which was kindly donated.  All of it very tasty I might add! Especially the tablet! Thank you, Mairi.

There was a very good plant stall, all home grown, with all types of bedding plants and also some tomatoes and cucumbers these proved very popular too with the folks who came along.

The book, bric-a-brac, bottle and knitting stalls were well attired, with some knitted dolls, blankets and various bits and pieces and were also very busy. All the knitted and crocheted items again home made.

The teas, coffees and juice for the little folks with cream scones and shortbread, were served before the raffle concluded the morning.

The Doll and Pushchair was won by H Firman.

The Grocery Hamper was won by S Burton.

The Girls bike was won by P McGarva.

The Boys bike was won by N Mc Robert.

There were many smaller prizes, bottles of Wine, Bacardi, Whisky and Vodka, Boxes of chocolates. Soaps, tiles, candles, jewellery etc far too many to remember but congratulations to everyone who was lucky enough to win

Enough to say that the day was a roaring success, raising £1310, with all proceeds going to the Day Centre itself.

Lastly, a great big thank you, to all the volunteers who gave freely of their time and also to everyone who donated prizes and items to sell on the various stalls.
