It was indeed lovely weather for ducks as the
heavens opened at Craigtoun Park just as Kilrymont St Andrews Rotary Club held
its Pluck-a-Duck event this week.
About 600 yellow plastic ducks took to the water at the Dutch Village pond and Craigtoun staff members Paul, Jake and Elliot fished out five prize-winners.
Duck 348 earned Willie Tait, St Andrews, the first prize of £50. Forbes Lockhart took second prize of £20 and the three third prize winners were James Allison, London; Lorraine Hopper, St Andrews; and Elliot Reid, from England.
Kilrymont president Mike Dow thanked the Craigtoun staff and also organisers Irene Walker, Marilyn Rowan-Rhind and Forbes Lockhart.
Sunshine Kitchen use a catering facility to make baked goods and other food products which are sold at local markets and events. They also offer a catering service and supply local cafes.
The wet weather put paid to a planned evening picnic by Rotary members and friends some of whom still visited the new outdoor area at the Craigtoun cafe which was partly funded with £1000 donation from the Kilrymont club.
The event has raised £500 for Cupar-based Sunshine Kitchen, a charity which provides a kitchen project for young adults with additional needs who require support to be part of a working environment.
