Hospice ben­e­fits from heavy metal road­show

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Cowal Vin­tage Trans­port Club held its char­ity road run on Satur­day Septem­ber 1, with guests from as far afield as Kin­tyre, Dun­blane and the Bor­ders join­ing in.

A colour­ful pro­ces­sion of vin­tage trac­tors, cars and mo­tor­cy­cles and an old MacBrayne’s bus left Sand­bank on the Holy Loch, wind­ing its way across the Cowal penin­sula to Ot­ter Ferry, be­fore hug­ging the Loch Fyne shore north­wards to Strath­lach­lan. At Strath­lach­lan Com­mu­nity Cen­tre the vin­tage en­thu­si­asts en­joyed a hearty lunch, with the op­por­tu­nity to view the gleam­ing ma­chin­ery.

The sun poked through the clouds and an en­joy­able day was made all the bet­ter in the knowl­edge that money raised on the day would be do­nated to Cowal Hospice in Dunoon.
