£510raised of £500 target by 21 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to help out the Dr MacKinnon Memorial Hospital on the Isle of Skye.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


As some of you may be aware we recently had to call on the services of the Dr Mackinnon Memorial Hospital, whilst we were staying on the Isle of Skye. After an accident, our son, aka 'Squeaky' needed to be checked for head injuries and was taken to the only hospital on the island, located over fifty miles from where the accident took place, by one of only four ambulances stationed on the Island. After Squeaky was checked over and had had an X-ray it was discovered that he had a fractured skull but because of the hospitals limited resources they weren't able to carry out any further tests to establish if there were any other internal problems or injuries. Most hospitals have access to CT Scanner, to say nothing of consultants and doctors who specialise in paediatrics. The Dr Mackinnon Memorial Hospital has none of these. Just dedicated and well trained staff who do their very best and when necessary, call on the air ambulance service to transfer patients who require treatment and further care, that they simply can not give.

Please click on the link below for the full details of the accident.

To say this Hospital was amazing would be an understatement and the quality of service they provided was above and beyond anything you expect from a hospital ten times the size. As i mentioned above, although the hospital is funded by the NHS, is not equipped to deal with everything and everyone who walks through their doors and looks after the population of Skye, as best they can. As such we would like to raise as much money as we can, not only to say a huge thank you to them but to also help them continue to provide a fantastic service and helps others with the same smile and kindness they gave to us.
