Portpatrick Tsunami Disaster Appeal Success

RESIDENTS of Portpatrick have raised an outstanding £3885.87 in aid of the Asian tsunami appeal.

The total was reached thanks to Saturday's Fundraising Day at the village hall organised by the Portpatrick Tsunami Disaster Appeal, as well as donations taken throughout the week.

Fundraising on Saturday took the form of a table sale, and appeal organiser Bill Gosson hopes to stage an even bigger event, including an auction and grand draw, later in the year.

A public meeting has been called for Monday, 24th January, at 6.45 pm in the village hall to form a committee to help organise future events.

Mr Gosson said the response to the appeal had gone beyond all expectations. He said:

"Not since September, 1939, the beginning of the Second World War, has there been such togetherness in people, from the school children of Portpatrick to the most senior citizens.

"We thank everybody who has donated and given freely of their time and also the public who came to support the event.

"It is our intention in Portpatrick to continue this crusade throughout the year towards the relief of the unfortunate people of Asia".
