We take our hats off to Kintyre Care Home worker Zoe Whitney for her bravery in shaving her head to raise money for the home’s residents.
We’re always amazed when people get in touch to let us know about their head shaves; it’s certainly not something everyone could do.
Zoe’s cause, like so many others, is very worthy.
The past year and a half has been challenging for us all, but must have been particularly difficult for care home residents who were often unable to see their family members or take part in their usual outings and activities.
Zoe’s thoughtfulness and selflessness in sacrificing her own locks to make sure residents can have an extra special Christmas is inspirational and most of us could take a leaf out of her book.
There’s still time to donate – more details are included on the front page.
Ill wind for factory
There is still a lot of uncertainty around the future of Machrihanish’s wind tower factory.
While it is reassuring to hear that the area’s local elected representatives are eager to work together to find the best route forward, we hope talk turns to action and results.
