Community Teashop Fundraising - October 2013


Like many small communities our village hall here on Rum is the real hub of our island. Used for meetings, home to the Teashop, venue for events, celidhs, birthday bashes, quiz nights and more. Our hall is a little tired though and recently we discovered is suffering from pretty extensive woodworm in the roof. Plans are afoot to treat the woodworm and make our hall an even better venue and we've been coming up with creative and interesting ways to raise the money we'll need to make those plans happen.
We've held quiz nights, raffles and other fundraising events, as well as gratefully receiving donations from Highland Council and visitors to the island. We've also run a very successful Community Sunday Teashop throughout the summer with different volunteers from the community showing off their cooking and hosting skills to run their own teashop each week. We've had themed weeks (French teashop and Geordie teashop were particularly inspired), high end cafe and full and hearty fayre offerings. For the autumn and winter we're carrying on twice a month on the first and third Sundays of each month, so if you're planning a visit to Rum come along - you never know what might be on offer and it's all for a very good cause!
