Drummond Laurie this year sponsored the Youths 200m at the 162nd Alva Highland Games which took place at Johnstone Park in Alva in glorious sunshine and in front of a crowd of over 3,000 spectators. The race was won by Amy Honeyman from Menstrie and the prizes were presented on behalf of Drummond Laurie by Rachel Gibson.
The games were the first in a series which were part of the annual “week away” taking in such locations as Rosneath, Burntisland, Inveraray and Mull. One of our employees, Andrew Gibson, took part in races at each of these highland games with the aim of winning some hard earned prize money. It was a successful week for him ending with a win in the Open Mile at Mull Highland Games aided by his daughter counting down the laps and son ringing the bell to signal the final lap. Not wanting to feel left out, the rest of the family also took part in the various visitors’ races over the week, all coming away with several prizes each.
