The sound of the pipes filled Main Street as Matthew McKerral and Calum O’Hanlon announced a fundraiser.

On a cool dry November morning Campbeltown Town Hall was soon buzzing, during fundraising for the Kintyre Juvenile Pipe Band Association.

A mixture of mums, dads, grandparents, supporters and youngsters manned the various stalls, including a treasure hunt, guess the sweeties in the jar, baking and a bottle tombola and collected a grand total of £1,082.35.

After a long dry spell the Courier reporter struck lucky and won a package of chocolate boxes on the raffle.
