Oban Charitable Trust volunteer appeal

Want to read more?

At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Oban Charitable Trust is seeking volunteers to keep the service going.

The charity was formed in 1991 by Graeme Pagan and manages the Hameart holiday flat in Oban, which is offered as self-catering holiday and respite accommodation to those suffering from cancer and their carers.

The trust appealed: ‘This is a vital and essential service that meets social and health care needs to cancer suffers and they would like it to continue.

‘Oban Charitable Trust is seeking new trustees to help decide on policies and practice to keep the service going. It is not time-consuming, but they are conducting a review on how they operate and need fresh thought and energy to maintain efficiency. It meets about four times a year.

‘If you have a special interest, have the energy and thoughts, and want to help, contact Bob on 01631 770279, or Laura on 07572 464869 for further information.’
