Report written by Callum and Lucy
On Friday the 22nd of November 2019 we had a Christmas Community Cafe. In preparation for the cafe we made lots of crafts to sell. We had tags, gift boxes, Christmas cards and hanging decorations.
On the day we had stalls for people to take part in to guess the name of the teddy, find gin and whisky in Lochdon Bay and buy tickets for hampers and raffle.
There was lots of tea and cake for everyone, the community really enjoyed themselves.
We would like to say thank you to everyone for their kind donations and generosity with our sales we managed to raise £245.75 for our school funds.
