MORAY REACH OUT’S FUNDRAISING WEEK
We would like to thank everyone who supported our fundraising and awareness raising week! We all thoroughly enjoyed it, and hope you did too! Our hope was to promote awareness of what we are about – empowering individuals within the community through participating in our various business activities – Buckie Yarns wool and haberdashery shop, Waste Watchers Buckie recycling collections and processing and In Stitches embroidery service.
The week kicked off with Waste Watchers setting up our Thrift Shop. As well as our own collections, the public gave generously and items of clothing, bric-a-brac, books, DVDs poured through the door! So much so, we opened for 4 days instead of the planned 3 days and we are thinking of opening again soon so watch this space! Waste Watchers and Buckie Yarns trainees helped out in the shop and did us proud.

BUCKIE YARNS COFFEE MORNING
Saturday 19th August was a very busy day indeed with Buckie Yarns hosting a coffee morning, which was very well attended – we think around 150 people. I haven’t seen so many delicious cakes and home bakes in a long time – we are overwhelmed by the generosity of people in and around Buckie.
WASTE WATCHERS – HELPING KEEP BUCKIE CLEAN
Waste Watchers were also busy on Saturday. They were doing a clean up in and around the skatepark in Buckie. They collected 2 bags of aluminium, 3 of mixed plastic, 4 of rubbish, 1 of ground up dirt/glass and 3 of weeds. For their hard work, the trainees and staff received a wee treat from ‘Czech This’ catering which was very tasty indeed. Food made with love!
