Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am currently in training to take on the challenge of trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp in order to raise money for a local charity I am passionate about.

HopScotch Children’s Charity began in 1998 with a vision to provide respite breaks for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children. It all started with the purchase and conversion of Ardvullin, a former ghillie’s lodge, into a comfortable and well-equipped holiday centre. Today Ardvullin remains at the heart of what HopScotch does, with their programme of respite breaks running for 36 weeks of the year.

Children come from all over Scotland to experience a nurturing and dynamic week of holiday. It remains true that most of those children will not get a holiday at any other time. They arrive from difficult home circumstances or needing respite from a range of responsibilities as young carers. Hop Scotch provide them with a week full of wonderful experiences, ensuring they are fully supported to make the most of their holiday. Good childhood memories last a lifetime, and it is my goal to help every child return home with lots of amazing memories to build upon.

If you think you can spare even a couple of pounds I'd be very grateful and so would the kids that benefit from opportunities this amazing charity provide.

Thank you

Grant
