A group of Dunoon women has completed a sponsored 5k run and raised several hundred pounds for various charities, including a local doctors’ surgery.
Seventeen women completed the run on June 5 which started at Kelvin Way, Glasgow.
Three of the women - Maria Carmichael, Seonaid Rae and Ann Robinson - put on their running shoes and raised £964.30, which has gone towards the purchase of an ECG machine for Argyll Street Surgery.
A new hydro electric scheme was officially opened last week, and it aims to provide the equivalent energy per annum as providing power to 86 homes. The scheme is expected to have a lifespan of over 50 years. The scheme at Colintraive harnesses the natural flow of the Milton Burn. The project will provide an electrical generating capacity of 830MWh per annum, which will enter the National Grid, providing green, renewable energy for use nationall.
