Golden surprise at the end of the Glen

Margaret Robinson draws the the winning tickets

Lochs and Glens bus driver, Mr S Jenkins, had just driven over Glenfinart and stopped at Blairmore yesterday when he got a surprising call on his mobile.  The Glenfinart Walled Garden Raffle had only  just been drawn at Ardentinny Village Hall and he was the winner of a bottle of Glenfiddich Single Malt. This was delivered to him poste haste as he waited at Blairmore while his passengers enjoyed a cuppa.

Volunteer Linda MacGuire won the holiday cottage let; Jeanette Riley, Ardentinny, won the McClintock paintings;  Josephine Ray of Blairmore learned there was a voucher for jewellery waiting for her at Blairmore Gallery. To our further delight, it was a wee 3 year old from Dunoon who won the extra prize of a  hand-made chocolate rabbit!

The funds raised from the raffle total £711.59, including £51.59 from donations.

Thank you Mr Jenkins for buying that ticket at Loch Fyne Food Fair and thanks to everyone who participated.  By another co-incidence yesterday the Community Council learned that  their planning application had finally arrived from the National Park and work can now begin on the Garden.
