Thank you to all who ran today in the Race for Life, and donated funds to Calums Cabin, and those of you who ran on behalf of Calum, with his name or his picture on your t-shirt, thank you, that means so much to us all. Wednesday sees the archaeological dig, happening at the Straad, hopefully nothing will be found, and fingers crossed that quite soon we will receive our building warrant, and the foundation will be laid. As I mentioned last week, filming is happening this week, and in advance, I would like to thank everyone who is involved, I know that it involves a lot of time and effort on everyone’s behalf, so thank you. Sunday, remember please that the 5k run, walk is on at the park, entry forms are available at the green tea cafe and the swimming pool, entry is £2 per adult and £1 per child, it is a community day, and it lets us all breathe in some fresh air , feeling good at the same time, looking forward to seeing you all. Katie, our wee friend who isn’t well again, is still in hospital, and still going through more treatment, a donor still has not been found, please keep thinking and praying for her. Thank you all.

Busy….busy……busy……

We had a lovely day at the football game and fun day at Wishaw yesterday (Sunday), we met a lot of people that we knew from our Yorkhill days, and were able to keep spreading the message that hopefully soon, we will be up and running and able to take families on a weekly basis. A lot of money was raised, so thanks to Les and all those involved yesterday. The young boy who won Calums trophy as best player, did a grand job on the pitch and I am sure Calum would have picked him as being the deserved winner. Calum would be so honoured that the trophy was named after him, as he would be for all the trophies and events that carry his name. This Friday as I mentioned last week, is a children’s musical concert in the cafe of the Pavillion at 7.30pm, tickets £3. This evening will show the superb quality of all our musical young people on the island, please come along if you can. Sunday 15th June is the annual fun run at the park, details on time have still to follow, but it will be in the afternoon, and you can run, jog, walk, push a pram, really anything at all, it is all about being out…

Thanks

Duncan and I went on Saturday to East Kilbride, what an amazing day, the Holiday Inn was full of people trying to donate blood to save Katie and lots of other wee people, God willing a match will be fund. Anyone who didn’t make it, or would still like to donate, simply go to your GP and they should be able to organise it for you, or go onto the Anthony Nolan web site. We heard from Karen Dunbar’s assistant this week, unfortunately she is having to go on tour earlier than anticipated, so it looks that it will be in the Autumn, maybe August or September that she will be doing her show on Bute. Les Hoey, a fundraiser for Yorkhill, and a gentleman that does a lot of work, for children, making their dreams come true, is having a fun day and celeb football match at King George V Park, in Wishaw on Sunday 25th May between 11 - 3.30 pm. He has dedicated the football trophy to Calum, so anyone who fancies a good day out please go along, adults £2, children £1,there will also be Clowns there, Marvin the Magician and Bouncy Castles and much more. There has been some work done this week, at the site, really just digging, to…
