I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who entered the competitions I ran for the Nancy Glen campaign.

I have been working in Tarbert for a while now and have a lovely client base there, I am so pleased to have been able to help and give something back.

I am sure I speak for a lot of people when I say this awful tragedy has touched many people and I can only give my heart felt condolences to the families affected.

I am pleased to say I have managed to raise £520 and I will be donating it to the just giving page later today.

Again thank you to everyone who entered and my apologies to the people who didn’t get a number.

I will hopefully be doing a live video on here later today for the winners of the competitions so please keep an eye out.

Good luck

The Nancy Glen Campaign Continues (Part 2)

As Twitter went crazy with requests to celebs, demands to MP’s and requests for help from every possible angle that could be thought of, others were creating videos, organising raffles and setting up support networks.

Jaimie Meecham and Ashley set up a draw with a bottle of The Laddie Valinch as a prize!

Raising funds of around £1700!

 Evening folks, to raise more money for the #Nancyglen myself and Ashley have got a special bottle of Bruichladdich whisky made (The Laddie Valinch). It is going to be sold through the Bonus ball, each ball will cost £30 and the draw will be made on Saturday 27th January’s national lottery if all balls are sold. Once all 59 balls have been bought I will put all the money raised into the into the Just Giving fund. The money can be paid by either pay pal or I will pm bank details.. if everyone could share this so that we can get the money into the Just giving fund as soon as possible!

The Nancy Glen Fundraising Facebook Page was set up, later linking to The Nancy Glen Appeal Website.

Kintyre Firewood created charity squares with various prizes, as you can see from the post, more support and offers were added;
