Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

Camp­bel­town Loyal Rangers Sup­port­ers Club pre­sented two cheques for £1,000 each to young High­land dancers and a pal­lia­tive care unit at Camp­bel­town hospi­tal on Mon­day. One half of the money, all raised by the club’s an­nual char­ity match on Satur­day Au­gust 25, will pay for new soft fur­nish­ings in the Sunroom, a pal­lia­tive care suite at the hospi­tal, to create a more homely en­vi­ron­ment for pa­tients. Macmil­lan nurse Mag­gie Wilkieson ex­pressed their grat­i­tude to the club. Mean­while the other half was do­nated to the McCorkin­dale School of High­land Danc­ing, ahead of a trip to com­pete in the Amer­i­can cham­pi­onships in Las Ve­gas next July. The owner James McCorkin­dale gave his sin­cere thanks to Camp­bel­town Loyal for its con­tin­ued sup­port.
