Participants: Rebecca McKeown


Rebecca was our beautiful little girl who died of TB meningitis in 2009 at Robin House.

She loved music and to DANCE!

This page is to collect money to allow children who attend Robin House to go to gigs and concerts with carers, in memory of a wee girl who didn't get the chance to.

So far kids have been able to get to lots of different fantastic shows, including:


Disney on Ice (so much Disney on Ice!)

Playground Festival

The Human League


Shaun the Sheep

High School Musical

The Wanted

American Idiot: The Musical

Mickey's Magic Music Show

The Singing Kettle



Girls Aloud

Soooo many Christmas Pantos

T in the Park

In The Night Garden

Nickelback (!)

Clyde Live

One Direction

Little Mix


The Full Monty

The Vamps

Without your donations these trips would simply not have happened. Families have had the chance to make memories and go to events with your support. 

This page has been set up so that if you want to give a small amount each year you can - or if you are running/walking/selling/cycling for charity, you can use this page for your sponsorship too.  If you can spare a few pennies, it goes to a great cause! We're not looking to raise a fortune - just enough for a few families to make some special memories every year. 

We've been overwhelmed by what people have managed to do so far - from triathalons to bake sales, cook books to marathons, every penny is hugely appreciated by us and the team at Robin House.

People who have made an amazing effort so far include

Rebecca's Roadsters on the Loch Ness Etape

The Palliative Care Team at the Beatson and GRI

Staff and kids from Nightingales nursery (Rebecca's old nursery - never forgotten)

Hazeldene Nursery

Paul and Maggie Henderson

Surinder and Emma Pampher

Lynne Beattie

Uncle Stewie (Ran a triathalon and raised over £3000!)

St John's Renfield Craft Group

Davey Waddell

Uncle Luke (a TUFF MUDDER!)


The Forth Rail Bridge Abseilers

Plus so many donations along the way from friends and family (see the list on this page) - we're now well over £50,000 in total from all of our events to date! 

Feel free to add more!

We are so grateful to everyone who has helped out - running 10k (and further), recording CDs, organising sales and selling their dignity! If you want to join in, feel free to use the logo, link and numbers on this page!
