Helensburgh Boys' Brigade cooked up a storm when they held their annual Big Breakfast on Saturday.

Officers and boys rolled up their sleeves to supply a constant influx of hungry customers who could opt for a either filled roll or a full breakfast.

This was the BB's main fundraising event of the year which was cancelled at the start of March due to the snowstorm caused by the Beast from the East.

And despite the amended date, friends and families came along to the Parish Church halls for a good tuck-in.

Captain Iain Talman said: "We made £562 which is very good and more than we might have expected.

"Thanks to the boys and parents who attended and supported the event, and all those who came along and enjoyed a breakfast.

"A thanks to those who donated home-baking etc for sale."

A special feature of the morning, in Helensburgh Parish Church halls, was CPR training by the Order of St John in Scotland.

The organisation showed people how the technique, which takes only five or six minutes to learn, could be a lifesaver.

John Kelly, Dunbartonshire area chairman of the Order of St John, told the Advertiser: "We trained 41 people ranging in age from five to 82 in bystander CPR in the course of two hours and that was a high percentage of those at the event.

"Many thanks to Iain Talman the Company Captain for permitting us to join in on his event."

He said the order of St John in Scotland were currently involved in a major CPR training programme across Scotland, visiting shopping malls, village halls, schools and other community locations.

John said their members are part of the Scottish Government five-year strategy which aims to save 1,000 extra lives by 2020 and equip an additional half a million people in Scotland with CPR skills.

The national collaboration involves more than a dozen organisations, including emergency services, defence and third sector, to improve the response to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Meanwhile, the BB members are looking forward their parents’ night to which all are welcome.

It takes place at 7pm on Wednesday May 23 at Helensburgh Parish Church Halls.
