Dig deep for seniors

As Mandy Robertson said, although Christmas is a happy time for many, it can be desperately lonely for some, particularly older people.

That is why the ‘Santa for seniors’ campaign is so worthwhile, bringing joy to those who may feel alone this festive season and reminding them that people are thinking of them.

Well done to all involved, particularly the young people who came up with the idea and continue to help co-ordinate the project.

If you know of any older people who deserves to be treated to a hamper, please let Mandy and the team know so they can add some Christmas sparkle to their lives.

Sporting success

Well done to all the young athletes who feature in the Courier’s sports pages this week.

It is always good when there is a variety of sports coverage; this week, we have rugby, swimming and football reports.

And the impressive results for all three sports proves that the hard work of the young people and coaches is paying off.

The P6/7 rugby team’s win is particularly poignant, given that the club lost coach John Forster, AKA Mr Rugby of Campbeltown, earlier this year.

What a beautiful way to pay tribute to John and his rugby legacy – well done, all!
