My connection with Strathcarron is as a volunteer massage therapist in the day care part of the hospice which offers a range of complementary therapy, physiotherapy, hairdressing, nursing care and companionship for up to 100 patients each week.

Having been involved for nearly 3 years I feel part of the team here and love my work with the patients. Participating in this challenge will help raise much needed funds towards the provision of this excellent service for our community, which is only partly NHS funded and depends on donations to function.

Indeed a staggering £12,900 needs to be found every single day to continue providing these services.

I have been climbing hills all my days so time to go for a big one. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to undertake this trek to the roof of Africa and contribute to the Strathcarron Hospice fundraising effort.

Thank you

Ken Maclean
