empty-land

I live in an area that has approximately 2 people to every square kilometre.   The area of Assynt has approximately 1200 people living in it.  So not a lot of people.

At exceptionally short notice, the Assynt Peace Group decided to have a fund raising table top sale for MSF's work in Haiti.  With just a few days notice everyone in the area rallied around, and on Saturday afternoon we had a wonderful crowd in Lochinver Village Hall, all being very generous with their money, and goods. I took a table, and all proceeds from the afternoon's sales went to the collection.

And the amount raised in this small community?  An overwhelming and wonderful £1750.00.

Congratulations Assynt!
