The Kirsty Bryden Memorial Trust


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.

Eight years ago we set off on the first fundraising challenge on the wee lass, Kirsty's 125cc motorbike. Doing the maths we are well on the way to having raised £100,000, coupled with the assistance given to over 200 families in this time for respite care. It is fitting that we are heading off in 2021 to India and back but this time “three up” on a bike. Jan, John and Eeyore to India and back.

Just so you know we are not for stopping. Thanks for the continued support to Kirsty's Kids'.

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 maximize 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).
