Arran Skinnymalinks – Thank you Lamlash Church for use of the Lesser Hall on Wednesdays and well done to everyone involved with “Roll Away a Stone for Easter”. Over the last 9 weeks, the Skinnymalinks have been faithfully standing on scales in Lamlash, Brodick and Shiskine. Some silver and gold stars have been awarded but definitely mixed results in terms of weight loss! The great news is that £630 has been donated to Mary’s Meals which is enough to feed 45 children for a whole school year – fantastic! Alison.
