Marion MacInnes, Service Manager for Alzheimers locally, says: “This is an amazing amount of money raised. Over 300 cupcakes were donated on the day and they were all sold out.
"We can’t thank Artizan café and the kind folks who supported by donating baking and by attending the event.
"We are under such pressure to raise funds to keep activities flowing so DIY events such as these are always highly appreciated – all we had to do on the day was turn up and have a cuppa as the girls did all the hard work!”
