Children In Need
After this morning's Circuit Training at An Talla we went next door to the small hall to look in on the folks organising the Tiree contribution to this year's Children In Need fund raising efforts. The folks in the Royal Bank of Scotland in Scarinish never fail to make a really concerted effort to raise money for this very worthwhile event and this year was no exception. The theme this year was The Wizard of Oz. Serving up the tea and home baking were the Wicked Witch of the East, Dorothy (played by Dorothy Connor), the cowardly Lion and the Tin Man - who was doing a sterling job of selling raffle tickets the last time I saw him. Oh, the scarecrow was there too - a fine scarecrow made by Hugh MacKinnon of Salum. Here's hoping it all went well and their efforts were rewarded with lots of cash for the kids. If anyone still wants to make a contribution get in touch with the folks at the Scarinish branch of the RBS.
