A nursery spokesperson said: ‘Everyone at Campbeltown Nursery Centre would like to express a sincere thank you to all who made the race night such a success.

‘A massive thank you goes to Donnie Lawson and all at the Masonic Lodge for organising and hosting such a fabulous event.’

The spokesperson also thanked the following local people and businesses for sponsoring races: Hugh Wilson, Kintyre Motors, West Coast Electrical, C&D McTaggart, Andrew Thompson Painting and Decorating
Calum McKinven, Kintyre Decor, DMC, and Harvey’s Hot Tubs.

They also thanked the following businesses and families for donating prizes for the raffle: Springbank Distillers, Numero Dix Hair Salon, Munch, Tesco, Streaks Ahead Hair Salon, The Kintyre Larder, McIvors, McKellars, The Royal Hotel, Carol Linfield Childminding, the Lafferty family for raffle prizes, and the Cameron family for the ‘win a bottle’ prize.
