Campbeltown Loyal hands out £2,000
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.
