A FAMILY fun day on the Black Isle this weekend is set to boost the coffers of a cherished charity.
The Winter Scale Model Show, Food & Craft Fair in aid of Marie Curie – to be staged at the Black Isle Show Ground in Muir of Ord of Saturday – has become an eagerly anticipated annual fixture of the events' calendar in recent years.
Hosted by well-known local farming couple Andrew and Claire Cameron, the family fun day runs from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, October 7.
The event will have scale model displays of cars, tractors, cranes and even Lego creations.
A great selection of local food and handmade craft stalls is also promised.
There will be vintage cars, lorries and tractors on display along with entertainment and kids’ activities.
Claire and Andrew have been hosting the event since its start in 2015 and have raised over £30,000 to date.
Claire previously said of her involvement: "I understand the importance of making sure people and their families are aware of the Marie Curie nursing service in the Highlands and the impact the nurses can have on a family at a very difficult and emotional time."
Entry to the event is free but all donations are welcome on the day to Marie Curie.
Marie Curie offers care and support through terminal illness.
To get a Marie Curie Nurse please speak to your district nurse or GP in the first instance.
