Alan & I have been together for over 15 years now, we live in Tillicoultry with our 6 year old son Philip & cat, Cheeka who are both just as mad as each other :-)

We have been engaged now for over 14 years now. Alan proposed when we were a walk up the Ochil’s, proposing with a ring pull from a can.

The hospice is close to our hearts & they helped care for Alan's late father, so any fundraising we can do with the help from our friends & family is greatly appreciated.

As life events go, we had been saving for a wedding back in 2011/2012 when we fell pregnant, but things didn’t go to plan as our son Philip was born extremely premature. Philip arrived when I was 5.5 months pregnant, arriving @ 26 weeks -  14 weeks prematurely & after 3 life saving surgeries including heart & bowel surgeries and just under a 6 months stay in 3 different hospitals he was discharged from Yorkhill in March 2013.

Obviously due to the circumstances at the time we had to use all of our savings.

Since then life has been hard work but an absolute pleasure. We are so so blessed with a healthy happy go lucky 6 year old who just absolutely loves life in every possible way!

We all love cars & bikes – anything with wheels basically, however drifting is our favourite car sport :-) We also love going on family walks/adventures together.

Please everyone get together and let's raise as much money as possible for such an amazing worth cause.

Thanks

Alan & Louise :-)
