At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall.
However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.
The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available on subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device In addition your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Staff at The Kintyre Larder donned a wild and wonderful variety of hats last Friday (March 26) while participating in ‘Wear A Hat Day’ as part of Brain Tumour Awareness Month.
Customers, suppliers and delivery drivers also got in on the act – all while adhering to Covid restrictions. Some popped into the shop wearing their own hats, while others were persuaded to try on one of many headpieces which were donated to the shop for the occasion.
Monetary donations were collected on Friday and in the days following, in aid of UK-based medical research charity Brain Tumour Research, a leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into what scientists are calling the last battleground against cancer.
When the Courier went to print, The Kintyre Larder had raised more than £220.
Owner Linda McLean said: ‘Thanks to everyone who kindly donated hats to use and all those who took part and donated.’
