Almost a month has passed since the Nancy Glen sank with two crew members aboard.

So many people have thrown themselves into fundraisers to help raise funds to bring the boys home.

I plan to cover them all, as every effort is appreciated.

I hadn’t thought for a moment what a huge task keeping track of them all would be, so many fantastic people, thank you, each and every one.

Above is Alfie, Busking outside Lochgilphead Co-Op and managed to raise £194.49 for the Nancy Glen Campaign!

The Carradale Scouts sent messages of love and sympathy.

While at Tarbert Academy, they organised a non uniform day and raised over £400 and raised over £100 more with a collection bucket at the Argyll and Bute awards at Helensburgh.

There will also be another fundraising event by Tarbert Academy in March.

Mirrin and Sophie both just 8 years old, walked from Westport Beach to Macrihanish and raised over £2500!

Hello folks. We had a fundraising weekend raising money for the Nancy Glen fund. Lots of people in Mull got involved including the schools. They raised an amazing £971 collectively. We had a raffle with some brilliant prizes kindly donated by people across Mull and beyond. We are very pleased to announce that the total raised so far is £5110. Also a cheque from Calmac for £100 which we will send on tomorrow along with the transfer of the other funds. We plan on holding more events soon to add some much needed funds to the pot. On behalf of myself, JohnLindsay and Johnny, I would like to thank everyone who has helped us reach this amazing target. Much love from one fishing community to another. Xx

A friend in Helensburgh sent me this photo Players, coaches, family and friends of HelensburghFC are walking round Helensburgh on a sponsored 2 mile walk to raise money for the families of the Nancy GlenHelensbu On Sunday 4th February

Families and friends of Helensburgh FC plan to do a 2 mile walk in memory of the Nancy Glen fishing Boat and to raise funds to help the families of those affected.

The Nancy Glen fishing boat of Tarbert was tragically taken by the West Coast of Scotland waters it fished. One fisherman survived, sadly the two other crew Duncan MacDougall and Przemek Krawczyk have not been found although it’s thought they were on the vessel which now lies on the seabed.

The families wish to retrieve their loved ones as soon as possible,which will take great resource. In addition the fishermen have left wives and young children behind. Helensburgh FC have forged strong links with both the football and also wider community of Tarbert and we want to help do all we can to assist these families at this time and in the future. We ask for support in this task. Please give generously so that these families may lay their men to rest and that their children are supported through the tough times ahead.

I would ask that as many of you as possible donate anything you can and join us on the walk through Helensburgh.
