Portpatrick Tsunami Disaster Appeal

A PORTPATRICK Tsunami Disaster Appeal was launched by the village's residents on Tuesday night.

Eighteen locals turned out at the home of Bill Gosson on Tuesday night to discuss future fundraising events for victims of the Asian disaster.

First will be a table sale in the village hall on Saturday 15th January, between 11 am and 4 pm, with an auction planned soon afterwards.

The sale will include ornaments, bric-a-brac and a bottle stall, a£ 100-prize raffle, as well as tea, coffee and home baking. No expenses would be deducted from the fund. Mr Gosson said:

"This is a disaster on a momentous scale and it is still growing, so the quicker we respond to it the better".

Another local said:

"We are a small tourist village that relies on tourism, so there is a lot we have in common with them".

A further meeting has been called for Monday night at the village hall at 8 pm to finalise the details of Saturday's fundraising day.
