A WONDERFUL, packed afternoon was enjoyed by the Golspie community at the recent Golspie High School “Soup, Sweet & Songs” lunch.

The event was organised by the school’s Interact Club to bring together the community at this festive time of year.

However, it was decided that the money raised would go towards the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) memorial funding page of Hamish Ross, Rogart, a former GHS pupil. Hamish died suddenly in July this year and his parents Donald and June set up the fund to pay to have young people in East Sutherland screened for hidden heart disease.

A rewarding £1186 was raised.

The soups and sweets were all made by the school’s hospitality class, plus an array of talent was showcased by the music department, including a performance from the school’s pipe band, and a performance of Hamish’s own composition.

A raffle took place, which was a huge success – tickets actually sold out.

A truly delightful afternoon, full of love, community and festive spirit which showed how loved and cherished Hamish was.
