Argyll and Bute

Day 30.  Sunday 13 July.

The Queen’s Baton Relay comes to Argyll and Bute on 13 July and we’re hoping you’ll be there to show your support! 

A one mile run, live music, dancers, come-and-try sports and street performers – these are just some of the activities planned to welcome Scotland’s biggest ever relay to Argyll and Bute.

From music and dancing in Appin, to choirs, bands and sports sessions in Oban and Lochgilphead, and from pipers in Lochnell , mini highland games in Inveraray, to a gala day in Strachur, and carnival rides and a mile run in Dunoon, there will be a lot happening across Argyll!

An ex-service man, David is currently head janitor at Oban High School. In his spare time he goes above and beyond, voluntarily helping with the school’s shinty team, particularly in promoting and supporting those with special needs. David has many strings to his bow (literally), as he’s Scottish Champion for Archery and assists at the local Archery Club.

In honour of both her late father and aunt, Carolyn undertook a gruelling 100 mile run in just three days to raise money for Friends of the Beatson in recognition of the service and support they provide to people, particularly families travelling from rural areas. She raised an incredible £13,000. Both her and her running partner Dougie Moore overcame illness and injury during training to bring communities together for this wonderful cause, and was the inspiration for countless others.

By day Gillian is a lead radiographer at the local hospital. By night she spends hours fundraising for charity, being the first to volunteer for a good cause. Each year she completes six bikathons in local schools to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, which she has been a member of the local branch for the last 13 years and now chairs the group.

Barbara (Babs) is a whirlwind of a sports volunteer on the island of Mull. She co-organises a multitude of sports activities on the island: Mull Runners, the annual half marathon, 10k, Junior road races, Triathlon, Race for Life for Cancer Research, Duathlon, Cyclocross, and the children's afterschool gym club to name but a few. Not content with only organising events, she also competes in off-island race.
