Hot Spot Connections Open Day success

Peterhead’s Hot Spot Connections group held their third successful Open Day on Thursday, May 29.

The event, held at the Hot Spot on Kirk Street, aimed to raise awareness of the facility and the various activities they have on offer.

Chairwoman of the Hot Spot Connections, Morag Allan, said: “It has been lovely and better than I thought it would be.

“After organising it all, I got nervous wondering if people would turn up but we have had a successful bottle stall and people are enjoying our black pudding shuffle game.”

Money raised from the Open Day will benefit the Hot Spot as Morag explained: “We want to cheer up the cafe a bit so the money will go towards getting a board for the pictures drawn by children who come in.

“By doing that we can put them up on the wall for everyone to see.”

There was also a stall displaying knitted baby blankets, hats and jackets which will be donated to help babies in Aberdeen and Africa thanks to members of the Community Service Volunteers (CSV) group.
