Written by 

Here we are again, another week down the line, and yet another new target reached, £50,000 how amazing is that?!!

We have had an awsome week, thank you at the start of the week to all who now have set up standing orders and direct debits, the 1st of the month has taken on a whole new meaning for us!!! Anyone who is interested in this idea, please contact us direct and we can advise you of the sorting code and bank account number, it is a wonderful idea and once the cabin is up and running will help to pay for the running costs, so thank you.

We would again like to thank all individuals, clubs, businesses and societies for their support this week ,whether it is a bag of pennies or a wonderful cheque, they are all warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Friday and Saturday, saw us bag packing in Somerfield, we were in from 8 in the morning until 8 at night, it was two days that were filled with laughter (and some tears) and we can’t say a big enough thank you to all who gave of their time and energy and of their “pennies” when shopping, in Somerfield it was a record we raised £1701.63 on Friday and £1852.84 on Saturday, giving us a grand total of £3554.47!!!. Friday also saw the new Cal Mac ferry “Argyle” come into operation between Wemyss Bay and Rothesay, and being Jazz Festival weekend we had been given the opportunity to have collections on both the “Argyle” and the “Bute”, thank you to all who helped and donated - £900.79 was raised.

Sunday saw a few events organised for Jazz weekend, so thankyou to all who organised,donated and purchased.

This week also saw us hit the “big time”, our merchandise is now on sale in the tourist board,selling t-shirts,bears,mugs and magic tricks - amazing.

This coming weekend sees the first of the 10k’s being run at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park, good luck to all who are running, you are amazing people (and fit with it), we only wish we could be there at the finishing line, to see all “Calum’s Cabin” t -shirts come over the line,but we are there with you in spirit, and I know Calum definitely is. We will be at the Bute Triathlon, and best of luck to all who are taking part there, again another lot of super fit buddies - you put us all to shame!! There will be a trophy in Calums name which is lovely - and I know he would be honoured.

As usual there are other events happening,which we know nothing about but are really greatful for, thankyou. If there is anything we can do to help,please just shout and we will do all that we can.

Thank you all again,each and everyone of you - Duncan, Jenna and I are just speechless,your generosity is fabulous and as I have said before - you are making a lot of unwell children have a dream holiday in the weeks,months and years ahead.

This week’s total stands at £52,568.56!!!!!!!!!!
