The Kirsty Bryden Memorial Trust


29 January 2015

It is with huge thanks to our MSP Dave Thompson Scottish Parliament. To Lochaber News, To The Oban Times, Sunday Post Raw Deal, and Press and Journal for putting pressure on BT to act and reinstate the telecommunications service here at Trust House.

After a 4 year battle BT have agreed to charge us a monthly fee in return for promising to provide a 24 hour call response. This cost will be met by the Trustees and not from your donations so this will not impact on the children's welfare budget.

To this end we are open and already looking forward to next week when we will have a wonderful family coming to us from Glasgow. Thanks to everyone for getting BT to respond and fix the network rather than having their spokes person telling us to relocate to London as it has better services than Scotland.

John Bryden, Chairman


The Kirsty Bryden Memorial Trust is a no overheads charity helping to improve the lives of all children including those who are suffering from serious life limiting illnesses, children with special needs and their siblings.

We are a registered charity number SCO42871.

You have enabled us to help so many children in the last two years. We have raised a grand total of £44,868.

Please keep up the good work we can only do what we do because of your donations and the volunteers who give so much.

As a no overheads charity every penny goes to the children we help; We operate on good will and sponsorship, using all unpaid volunteers who use their own private cars, our own private vehicles and we pay for our own fuel to attend events.

We source posters, badges etc from sponsors to deliver 100% of your donation direct to those in need.

The Trust always investigate every cause to ensure no cash get wasted through misguided good intent. We deliver to maximise the benefit of every penny raised.

100% of all donations go to the kids (there are no deductions for expenses or wages taken from donations).
