Castaway Claire

Castaway Claire CalderClaire, mum of Nadia [a burn survivor child, now one of the SBCC volunteers] completed a personal challenge. Claire started her lone castaway challenge [well with the exception of her two little dogs Midge & Milly] on 6th July on the uninhabited island of Eilean Garbh, which is situated just west of the island of South Rona, in the Sound of Raasay……. www.isleofrona.com , in aid of the Scottish Burned Children’s Club.

Please see how Claire coped with this personal challenge via her blog: http://isleofronalog.com/castaway-claire/ .

A very big thank you to the Warden, Bill for the updates and all his support.. The weather was not very kind to Claire and we would like to thank Bill so much for helping Claire during the month and for the crossing to and from the Island, without this Claire’s challenge would not have been possible.

The SBCC would like to also thank everyone in Applecross and the owner of the island for their support, it is gratefully appreciated.

Please also check out Claire’s Facebook page and ‘share’.
