Cancer hero

Nothing keeps Yvie down for very long.

Her last epic charity challenge last October – walking 400,000 steps or 180 miles for Breast Cancer Now – was achieved despite an injured knee.

Now she’s tackling the highest Munro in the southern Highlands and more (just the two and a half marathons) for a charity raising awareness among young people of breast cancer.

As we ease out of the pandemic, we are likely to see a rise in cancer cases as a result of people not being diagnosed during the Covid battle.

Which makes the work of charities like Coppafeel even more vital than it was pre-pandemic.

If there are Mid Argyll businesses or individuals out there who would like to support her as she aims for a pretty high fundraising bar, it would be much appreciated by Yvie.

Pupil power

Schooling is another part of life which has been greatly affected by Covid, and it is fantastic to see the work of pupils in this unique time being recognised.

And we shouldn’t forget the dedication of teachers and other staff during the pandemic.
