Gillian Milne and Isabelle Riddoch, from Auchenblae, have run the latest in a series of Nearly New Sales held in the village for the past six years.
On this occasion, last Saturday, the main beneficiary was the charity “Fighting for Sight.”
This charity was chosen at the request of Clare Ptaszek, a friend of Gillian and Isabelle’s, whose daughter Millie had a serious accident earlier in the year which caused significant damage to her right eye.
Clare was very grateful for the expert treatment and support provided to her at this very difficult time by the Clinical Research Centre of the Eye Outpatient Department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the Royal Children’s Hospital, Aberdeen. Millie continues to attend the clinic and children’s hospital and is making good progress.
Further donations were made to Auchenblae Primary School to assist them in the purchase of necessary IT equipment and to MacMillan Cancer Support to boost the funds made at the coffee event held in Drumlithie on the same day as the sale.
The next sale which is at Auchenblae Village Hall on Saturday, November 16, runs from from 9-11am. Should you wish further information, contact Gillian on 01561-320685 or Isabelle on 01561-320759
