The latest winners of Bute Shinty Club’s weekly lotto draw are Rothesay ladies Isobel Burley and Karen Beckett.

Isobel and Karen both matched the three numbers - 3, 6 and 13 - which were picked at random in Monday night’s draw, and each received half of the £800 jackpot prize.

Both tickets were bought at the Galatea Bar in Rothesay, and Dee Irving from the ‘Gala’ presented Isobel and Karen with their prizes.

Bute Shinty Club’s lotto co-ordinator Tommy Howat told the club’s AGM recently that the competition had seen proceeds of almost £14,000 in the course of 2015, with £10,500 of that going back into the club’s own funds; prize money of £5,200 was paid out during the year.
