Ellon group have successful weekend

An Ellon group did their bit to raise cash for the Skelpin’ Cancer Weekend.

A bake sale in Neil Ross Square on Saturday brought in £1018...to the delight of organisers, who said: “This figure far exceeded any figure we had hoped to raise and once again we are overwhelmed with the support we are receiving.”

A Station to Station Walk the following day attracted about 40 participants, including three four-legged friends and two who opted to run the 8km distance.

The amount raised was more than £1200, but sponsor money has still to be collected.

The weather was favourable for the walk, which was enjoyed by all and finished with afternoon tea in the Station Hotel.
