Seil buggy run for the children of Yemen

Please consider sponsoring Rachael Maclean on Seil to help the children of Yemen who are suffering life in diabolic conditions.

Seil buggy run is a group of mums (dad’s grandparents, friends etc welcome…) running (walking/skipping/hobbling) at their own pace from Ellenabeich to the other side of the Clachan bridge with or without a little person in a buggy.

Since Rachel cannot bring all the innocent children home to live here where it is safe with us, lets see if we can make just the tiniest difference by raising as much cash as possible for this worthy cause…Times are hard for many, but please donate as much as you can, even 50pence.

Meeting point: Seil Hall

Date & time : Sun 9 August meet at 09.45 for 10am start

Destination: The mainland over the Atlantic via Clachan bridge

☀️There will be CAKES for participantsHere is the link for donations:https://uk.gofundme.com/f/coast-to-coast-and-across-the-atlantic-buggy-run

Kilbrandon & Kilchattan Churches staying closed at present.

Kilbrandon & Kilchattan Churches will be staying closed at present despite being reported on the news that Churches can now re-open for private prayer.  We cannot do that at the present time with our churches.  Firstly they have to be accessed for safety requirements, then for fitting and fixtures, wall sanitisers and hand free soap dispensers, signage, and floor markings etc.  will have to be fitted. Then when it is opened, it will have to be cleaned after every use, so to open at the present time is unfortunately not practical.  We regret this and will keep everyone informed.
