MORE than 60 litres of soup was served when the Muckhart Primary School community came together for a biannual event at the weekend.

The Soup & Sweet event held on Saturday, October 5, was hailed another tremendous success with the school’s parent council organising the food and stalls at the Coronation Hall in a bid to raise funds and benefit pupils.

More than 150 people came along with organisers starting to lose count and the funds netted exceeded expectations with more than £1,200 collected to help buy things for the school it could otherwise not afford.

The money will go on vital resources and to provide experiences for the children in order to gain the knowledge and skills they will require for life and in the world of work.

Thanks go to everyone who helped, donated puddings and bakes as well as for coming along and supporting the village’s school in general.

A nod of appreciation went to residents and carers at Balhousie Care Home in Rumbling Bridge who took time out of their day to join the lunch event.

Special thanks go to Tesco in Alloa for donating bread, The Co-op in Dollar for donating items for hot brews as well as to The Scottish Soup Company for delicious soup pots for the raffle and home produce stall.
