Crossreach Children’s Services work at residential schools in Beith, Ayrshire and Balfron, Stirlingshire. They cater for the educational, emotional and social needs of boys aged 8-18. Gordon Campbell has the task of building a database of people who are willing and able to give of their time to a group of youngsters. Letters, e-mails or Skype could help to enrich the lives of the boys who live away from home and are disadvantaged as a result. If anyone is interested please contact Gordon on Gordon.Campbell@geilsland.org
Exhibition on the life and achievements of Sir David Jack (1924-2011)
There is a very impressive exhibition over in the church hall today for anyone who is interested in the achievements of Sir David Jack, who used to live in Markinch. He was the scientific brain behind the rise of the pharmaceuticals company Glaxo and was credited with the discovery of no fewer than seven highly important drugs, including the ‘Ventolin’ inhaler for asthma sufferers, and the anti-ulcer drug ‘Zantac’. A blue plaque was unveiled on Friday, by Lady Jack, above the door of 42 Commercial Street, which was his family home.
