Thanks to the Souper Troopers!
Many thanks to all those members and friends who came along to support our Soup & Sandwich lunch at the Winter Craft and Produce Fair (run by local business women Julie Edwards and Ann Marie Firth Bernard) on Saturday 24th November. Our joint catering venture with Abi Muir raised £370 to be split 50/50 between us.
Special thanks to our soup makers: Coigach Wind Power Chair Alison Sinclair (lentil & bacon), CCDC Director Ann Macleod (spicy sausage) and members Dorothy Miller (minestrone) and Lesley Muir (smoked ham hough and lentil) for their delicious contributions (and we hear that the LDO’s experimental French onion wasn’t as bad as feared either). Thanks to all who turned up, set up, served up, ate up and cleared up.
Abi, a pupil at Ullapool High School, is raising funds to travel to Uganda for a year to work as a volunteer for the Project Trust where she will be helping teach primary school children. Abi and her mum Ish Pendred provided a mouth-watering spread of sandwiches, and with the generous contribution of a beautiful fruitcake made by Moira Reed, our customers seemed very satisfied indeed – and Abi is a little nearer her fundraising goal of £5000.
