FUNDS rolled in as cakes and other baked goodies were snapped up at the Elderslie Guild’s annual coffee morning.

The group meets every fortnight at Elderslie Kirk to hear from guest speakers and enjoy some fellowship.

Last weekend, members got together for a fundraising event to collect cash which will go towards Church of Scotland Guild projects.

These six projects, running from 2015 to 2018, include Ascension Trust street pastors, Care for the Family, Christian Aid, Feed the Minds, Mission International and Prospects.

Talented bakers in the group whipped up a tasty selection of goodies for the event, including scones, fruit loaves, cakes and traybakes, which went down a storm with guests.

Around 60 people attended the bake sale, including many of the Elderslie Guild members and some of their family and friends.

Just under £500 was raised on the day, much to the delight of Anne Turner, who is convenor of the Elderslie Guild.

She said: “We host our bake sale once a year and the proceeds go to the six Church of Scotland Guild projects.

“There were some very tasty cakes made on the day, which helped to make our event so successful and raised hundreds of pounds.

“Our thanks go to everyone who came along to our coffee morning.

“We are also welcoming new members to our group, which meets at Elderslie Kirk from September through to Spring.

“Meetings take place on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, starting at 7.30pm.”

Members of the Elderslie group are also preparing for Guild Week 2017, which runs from November 19 to 26.
