A survey of 11-18-year-olds at Lochgilphead High School on alcohol consumption has thrown up some startling statistics but Community Action Lochilphead Ardrishaig (CALA) which conducted the survey,has cautioned against taking the stats at face value.
It was a hair-raising experience for a number of people across Mid Argyll when they went for a not-so-quiet drink at Lochgilphead’s Argyll Hotel –and lost their hair in the process as they went head to head with a razor in aid of the Rainbow Valley charity.
The charity aims to fulfil the vision of cancer-victim Johanna MacVicar,who died in 2005,and create a centre of refuge where people affected by cancer can go for advice and support.
Four students from Argyll College raised £300 for Mid Argyll’s MS Centre,which will be used to fund the centre’s yoga classes.
Read about the fund-raising efforts and also about an exciting new project to be launched by the Lochgilphead centre,which will allow the service to reach more people across Mid Argyll,all in the Argyllshire Advertiser,May 3 2013 and on line at www.argyllshireadvertiser.co.uk/digital
