HELENSBURGH Tennis Club members and their friends really rose to the occasion when it was decided to raffle a bottle of champagne in aid of Children in Need.

"I have been overwhelmed and delighted by the response," said organiser Ann McKelvie. "In just a week we raised the amazing total of £505."

A year ago the club's first Children in Need Lunch in the clubhouse proved a massive success, and raised £766, compared with £300 raised at the 2018 coffee morning. As such events cannot be held at present, Ann decided to try a raffle.

The draw was made on Monday morning by club secretary Frankie Hanmer, and the winner of the bubbly was Greg Cadman.

Bottles of wine went to Phyllis Fullarton, Jackie Hunter, Ann Morison, Lorna Naismith and Margery Osborne.
