Stron­vaar bowled over by Parkin­son’s fundraiser suc­cess

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS - Words and pic­tures HAN­NAH O’HAN­LON

AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Camp­bel­town bowler took part in his first ever com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day.

Ryan John­ston com­peted in Camp­bel­town Bowl­ing Club’s Ge­orge and Jenny Mackay char­ity pairs in aid of Parkin­son’s, along­side Bobby Dalziel.

For the spec­ta­tors and play­ers not in ac­tion on Stron­vaar green there were burg­ers, hot dogs and lentil soup for sale in the club­house, as well as home bak­ing and a raf­fle.

Also on sale were light bot­tles made by Louise Mackay and her fa­ther Alis­tair, whose grand­par­ents

and par­ents re­spec­tively, the con­test com­mem­o­rated.

De­spite the day’s in­clement weather, most of the com­pe­ti­tion, which is spon­sored by The Whisky Shop, took place out­side and only the fi­nal, be­tween Jimmy An­der­son and Alis­tair Munro and Cather­ine McEachran and Peter Colville, had to be moved in­doors.

Ul­ti­mately Jimmy and Alis­tair clinched the ti­tle, but young Ryan was pre­sented with a box of cho­co­lates to con­grat­u­late him on his suc­cess in his first com­pe­ti­tion.

Around £1,300 was raised on the day, and was do­nated to Camp­bel­town’s Parkin­son’s group.

Martha Ren­nie and Fiona Smith be­hind the bak­ing stall.
