Oban Otters held their 2021 Prizegiving ceremony and fundraising evening at The View on Friday night thanks to the easing of Covid restrictions.

Club president Moira Logan welcomed the large gathering of Otters and their friends and families, with coaches Shannon McCuish and Debbie MacIntyre making the presentations.

Following the presentations there was a full house for the bingo and raffle at which £750 was raised for the club to buy new equipment.

The Otters wish to thank The View for organising the evening and the club’s supporters for all the raffle donations.
