Posted on March 17, 2017As we approach Jaspers 2nd anniversary, I am pleased and humbled to say, we've now raised just over £3,500.
In a few short months the Trust has grown from an idea to a (nearly) fully fledged charity. Morton and Fraser are drawing up the papers and we expect to be registered by end of May, early June 2017.
Two families are booked into Tigh Eilidh on Eigg during July and the trust are looking forward to feedback on how the holidays go and what we can do to make it better.
Tigh Eilidh has just gone on the market but the 2017 bookings are 'safe'. It would be amazing if we could raise the funds to buy the cottage and run it as a retreat and holiday escape for people who are struggling with cancer.
Big dreams indeed.
Thanks so much for your donation. It really does make a huge difference.
Next up for fundraising is a 'Cultural Cake Bake' sale at Edinburgh College on 11th May.

Posted on November 7, 2016Hello,
We are fundraising through October and November and are pleased to say, we expect to have raised £1500 by the New Year.
Lenkas whisky tasting was a huge success, a very enjoyable evening, and raised £855 for the trust.
Rani and her friends are 'cycling and swimming' the distance Edinburgh to Eigg on 19th November at the Holiday Inn at Edinburgh Zoo, drop by if you're in the area!
and.. I am playing my first gig in over 3 years at the Traverse Theatre on 28th November, along with Lindsey Black and her band, also appearing are, The Fairly Famous Family and The Nevernever Cowboys. http://www.soundhouse.org.uk/events/lindsey-black-sharon-king/
Thank you very much indeed for your donations. The trust will be formalised in early 2017 and we are making plans to send our first family to Eigg in summer 2017.
Thank you for helping make this possible.
All the best,
