THREE local charities are each £600 better off after a highly successful pop-up fish restaurant at Lunna House raised £1,800 on Sunday.
More than 60 people were treated to a three-course lunch or dinner in the historic mansion thereby raising funds for the RNLI, MacMillan nurses and Clan Cancer Support.
The ingredients were donated The Handmade Fish Company and Scoop Wholefoods, with wine and champagne coming from regular visitors to Lunna House, Hampshire couple Michael and Judith Bilton.
Organiser Helen Erwood said: “The event could not have been so successful without our fantastic neighbours and friends at Lunna, many of whom worked all day preparing and serving our fishy menu; and for Ronnie Williamson from Scatness who worked with me and helped with all of the cooking.”
She also thanks everybody who came along to support the fundraising effort.
