Kirkcudbright Canoe Club Rescue Tourists In Distress

Some members of Kirkcudbright Canoe Club helped out a family who were on holiday in the area and had got into a bit of difficulty at Carrick Shore last night, Monday May the 13th.

The family gave a very generous donation to the club as a thank you

A Spokesperson for the club told DGWGO News “We didn’t realise quite how generous until later and didn’t get their name to say thank you. They are from the Bellshill area. We are very grateful for their donation, there was no need as we were happy to help out, but it is much appreciated and we will put it to good use in the club.”
Club Members vSaid “Hopefully they will see this thank you on D&G what’s going on.
