Assynt Mountain Rescue Team / Alzheimer's
Scotland Sponsored Walk
Once again summer is just round the corner and with it comes the annual sponsored walk in aid of Alzheimer’s Scotland & Assynt Mountain Rescue Team! The walk has become an annual pilgrimage for some and a weekend escape. The Usual wee dram at the end of the walk will be provided this year by Old Pulteney.
This will be the 9th walk we have undertaken and as many of you know they have been fun for all ages, successfully raising on average off between £3000 & £5000 every year for both charities.
In 2005 we raised £5000+ this was equally split between both charities. A big thank you to everyone who took part in what turned out to be a lovely day although a bit humid, the day got better towards the afternoon, the BBQ was a great success with us running out of food and having to ask the Crask Inn for some of there burgers, so a lucky few got venison burgers.
The RAF Rescue Helicopter turned out in the morning to drop water and team members on the hill, giving the walkers an added spectacle. This year’s walk will see us based at Lettermore on the A836 to Altnaharra and later in Tongue at the Brass Tap for the BBQ
The walk this year is to take place on Saturday the 17th of June, see the enclosed info sheet for the details, please arrive at Lettermore for registration.
Also included in the pack you will find the registration form, sponsor sheets and request for a place or places at the BBQ, there will be a vegetarian option.
The support over the years has been
excellent and is very much appreciated by both charities
