Ded­i­ca­tion re­ceives just rewards

Campbeltown Courier - - YOUR VIEWS -

It has been heart­en­ing this week to hear of the many Kin­tyre peo­ple who have been re­warded for their self­less hard work. Su­san Shaw, who has car­ried out an in­cred­i­ble 612 hours of vol­un­tary work, was named this year’s young vol­un­teer of the year by Ar­gyll and Bute Third Sec­tor In­ter­face. A sixth-year stu­dent at Camp­bel­town Gram­mar School, Su­san un­doubt­edly has enough school work, in ad­di­tion to time spent with fam­ily and friends, to fill her sched­ule but she man­ages to vol­un­teer for var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions. Sim­i­larly, Alex McKin­ven, in his eighth decade, at a time when many would be en­joy­ing the op­por­tu­nity to re­lax and ap­pre­ci­ate their re­tire­ment, has se­nior po­si­tions in five groups. Kin­tyre man Dou­glas McMurchy re­ceived a well-de­served long-ser­vice medal in recog­ni­tion of more than two decades of re­tained fire fight­ing. It is just a shame Camp­bel­town is los­ing Dou­glas to Bridge of Al­lan, but we wish him the best of luck for his fu­ture.
