World’s biggest coffee morning
MSP MICHAEL Russell is calling on people in Argyll and Bute to help raise money for a cancer charity - by drinking coffee and eating cake.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘world’s biggest coffee morning’ is celebrating its 25th birthday this year so the charity hopes the 2015 event will be the biggest ever with events taking place across Scotland on September 25.
Mr Russell said: ‘ Macmillan want to make sure no one has to face cancer alone but they can’t do it without the amazing people who take part in the coffee morning every September.’

Marine life on the move say experts
SCIENTISTS at Dunstaffnage’s Scottish Association for Marine Science have modelled data for nearly 13,000 marine species and found that by the end of this century, countries either side of the Tropics will have a greater variety of marine species.
Tropical marine animals that currently thrive in warm habitats around the equator will have to spread north and south to avoid extinction as global sea temperatures rise, a study has found, with the Tropics suffering a nett loss.
The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, is based on global climate models and is the most comprehensive to date on expected shifts in marine animal populations.
