One of the most important aspects of life in South Kintyre is our supportive community. If it wasn’t for local fundraising, we wouldn’t have so many talented musicians, dancers, sports groups and artists. We have many charity events throughout the year to raise funds for clubs, charities, schools, hospitals & homes. Please see our partners below or visit our events page to see how you can help
