Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am commemorating the 1st Anniversary of former work colleague George Morrison's death by Cycling the entire length of the Outer Hebrides to raise funds for Macmillan and Trossachs Search + Rescue.
Elaine - George's wife, who is also a former colleague, is the inspiration for this sponsored cycle and will by cycling too. My wife Joanne, also a former member of the same profession will drive our back-up vehicle for the trip.
Macmillan nurses were hugely supportive of George and Elaine when he was undergoing years of treatment for cancer.
Trossachs Search + Rescue is a unique organisation which delivers lifesaving training by way of free CPR and AED classes - 1,163 people trained in 2016; maintains 105 public access defibrillators across Loch Lomond & The Trossachs - which have saved 6 lives in 4 years; provides rescue boat services and provides the Urban SAR dogs that located all concealed casualties at Stockline and The Clutha disasters in Glasgow. It is NOT a mountain rescue team and therefore has to raise ALL monies itself. The team operates anywhere required and has participated in searches in the Outer Hebrides for two missing men, from separate incidents on several occasions.
The 200 hundred miles will be completed over the course of one week starting at Vatersay in the south on the 8th May 2017 and ending at The Butt of Lewis to the north on the 15th of May.
