A couple of Colonsay’s residents recently took up the Sober October Challenge in which an individual is sponsored to stay off the booze for the whole of October to raise money for Macmillan Nurses. Quite a feat but one ably tackled by Donald MacAllister Jnr and Christopher Baker Jnr. In total they raised around £450.

Christopher even took up the next big challenge; Mo-vember (aka No-Shave November). So if you saw him around with some questionable facial hair just know it was all for a good cause!
