Strath­lach­lan trial to sup­port can­cer care

Argyllshire Advertiser - - FARMING -

SHEP­HERDS will gather on the shores of Loch Fyne this week­end to com­pete in a pop­u­lar sheep­dog trial while rais­ing char­ity funds.

Strath­lach­lan char­ity sheep­dog trail is rais­ing funds for Marie Curie, which pro­vides care and sup­port to peo­ple with ter­mi­nal ill­nesses and their fam­i­lies. Or­gan­iser Cather­ine MacDiarmid said: ‘This is a fun day for lo­cal han­dlers to run their nurs­ery dogs and their open trial dogs, while also rais­ing funds for char­ity.’

There will be a va­ri­ety of home bak­ing along with home­made soup and stovies. There will also be a small auc­tion and a chance to win a bot­tle of whisky at the hotly-con­tested ‘toss the pound’ com­pe­ti­tion. This trial will be held on Sun­day Novem­ber 5 be­tween 8.30am and 5pm. Cather­ine added: ‘It is open to the pub­lic, so come along and en­joy a great fam­ily day out.’

The trial is hosted by Strath­lach­lan Es­tate and will be held in the shadow of new Cas­tle Lach­lan, near Stra­chur.

Spec­ta­tors en­joy the sunshine at last year’s char­ity sheep­dog trial event.
