Modest hero

The last thing David MacInnes sees himself as is a hero.

Be we believe differently. His example is heroic, not simply because he donated stem cells, but also with his various fundraising efforts. It can only be hoped others follow his example and find out more about how to get involved in stem cell donation.

Its importance is summed up in a simple statement by stem cell recipient Brett Grist, who said: ‘Without David, my kids would have grown up without a father.’

Fyne and friendly

Another Fyne Fest has come and gone, and what a cracking wee festival it is.

In common with other Argyll festivals, there is always a great atmosphere; warm and friendly despite the midges.

No…even the midges are friendly, relishing getting up close and personal with every festival-goer.

Football success

And well done to the Red Star 2004 players as they retained the cup and won the league against teams from much bigger communities.

No mean feat, and congratulations to the coaches and parents too for the sacrifices and effort they put in.
