The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

L ast Wednes­day af­ter­noon the un­think­able hap­pened. Two beau­ti­ful young chil­dren lost their lives af­ter the car they were trav­el­ling in left the A816 near Kilmelford and plunged into Loch nan Druim­nean.

The news left Ar­gyll shocked and stunned, and the out­pour­ing of sad­ness and sup­port for the fam­ily has been over­whelm­ing, with many peo­ple tak­ing to so­cial me­dia to send their mes­sages of sym­pa­thy.

Fam­ily friend Sarah Stop­ford set up a crowd­fund­ing page, which has so far raised £13,000 to help the fam­ily.

It may be a cliche, but it is at times like these that com­mu­ni­ties like ours show their true worth. The gen­eros­ity of so many peo­ple, in words and deed, has been heart-warm­ing.

The sym­pa­thy of all at The Oban Times goes out to Leia and Seth’s par­ents, fam­ily and friends at such a sad time.
