A huge thank you to everyone who came out to the Cree Inn on Saturday 9th February and helped raise a brilliant £226.67 for The Vault Arts Centre project. That takes the running total to £496.67, which is a terrific start, with further fundraising planned over the coming weeks.
There has been a fantastic response from the local community since plans were announced to convert the former Royal Bank of Scotland building on Victoria Street, Newton Stewart, into a new arts centre supporting the annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival and delivering a year-round programme of music, dance and language tuition and live performances as well as arts and crafts tutoring and exhibitions.
The JustGiving fundraising campaign was launched in late January to raise funds for the project and we've been very humbled by everyone's support and generosity.
We'd like to offer a particular thanks to the following local businesses and individuals who provided us with raffle prizes on Saturday night, which was hugely popular and helped push the total raised even further.
Balloch O' Dee Campsite
Rowan Glen Dairy
Allison Motors Ltd
Scent of Galloway
Co-op Newton Stewart

A special thank you also to Sean and everyone at the Cree Inn who provided the venue free of charge.
