CHRISTMAS came early in Kilmacolm at a fundraising festive fayre.

Over 200 people gathered at The Cargill Centre on Saturday to support the local social care charity Quarriers' annual Christmas fayre.

Thanks to superb support from the community, the event raised £1,954 for the lifeline charity.

A spokeswoman for Quarriers said they are grateful to everyone who attended.

She said: "We think about 235 people were there on the day, which was a great turnout.

"There were about 30 different stalls selling lots of goodies.

"One of the main attractions was the Santa's grotto which was very busy.

"The whole day went very well and we would like to thank everyone who came along and supported it."

Throughout the day, people enjoyed perusing a wide variety of stalls which sold everything from handbags and purses to oil paintings and gifts of every kind in between.

The funds raised will be put towards the many Quarriers services and programmes which support vulnerable children, adults and families who face extremely challenging circumstances.
