On the 21st December 2020 they challenged themselves to addle Board the entire width of the Scottish mainland, unsupported, via the Caledonian canal. This is from Corran in the West to Inverness in the East. They will follow the glen for 70 miles passing through Loch Eil, Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and then finally the last 23 miles across Loch Ness to the finish at Kessock Bridge. This is where they will once again meet the sea at the mouth of the Moray Firth 4 days later on the 24th December, Christmas eve. They will be completely self sufficient throughout the journey receiving no assistance and carrying everything we need for the duration on the boards with them.
They are doing this to raise money for disadvantaged children in the UK at Christmas time. The festive period can be an extremely difficult time for a large number of young people throughout the country who may be living in poverty, without family or find themselves the victims of violence. For these children, Christmas can be lonely, upsetting and not very magical at all.
They want to help raise funds that will go toward making the festive season a happier time in these children’s lives and any donation you can spare would be greatly appreciate, but more importantly by the young people around the UK who desperately need it.
On behalf of the team, Esland care and Action for children they would like to thank you for your support and donations.
You are helping to change lives.
