In preparation for our fundraising for Ukraine, Eeyore is in training to do the West Highland Way walk for Ukrainian children. Trustees have a GoFundMe page why not meet Eeyore at the Start of his challenge at 10am on June 29th in Fort William to wave him off. The charity will as always be carrying out this endurance challenge un-aided and no funds donated will be used for expenses or accommodation, the team will be roughing it as usual and walking the 98 miles un-aided. Chairman John Bryden and Administrator Sally Gardner will be assisting Eeyore as he heads down the West Highland Way. With 2/3rds of the next consignment sorted we are going to be delivering sooner than later, all support is incredibly appreciated. is determined to get back on the campaign to help the lives of these children, near £2,000 will be directly put towards medical life-saving equipment. Thank you in advance for your continued support and please like and share this post.




We are pleased to announce that with all the support we have received from Highland Council and the community, it has been formally acknowledged that Westminster's Network Rail will never again return to the industrial yard they created and that we will be forever left in peace.

Thanks to everyone and over 5 thousand signatures of support in this. It was due to the professional non-confrontational stance taken by the board trustees, supporters and families who have benefited that we hold our heads high in dignity. The shame on what took place will always be on the heads of Westminster's Network Rail.


UPDATE!  John and Jan are back in Scotland after their third trip which saw them head into Poland, reload, and return to Ukraine.  See our new feed page for up-to-the-minute details.


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 SC042871.

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.

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 goodwill 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 investigates every cause to ensure no cash gets 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).


Operation Santa

19 December 2020

This morning Operation Santa began its first phase.

We started this event in the hope of bringing Christmas to five families. With Santa's help, we now have over 50 children who will be sitting to a huge Christmas dinner and with parcels to open.

Our first delivery tipped us over the border into England. We will be heading north to Inverness area then across Lochaber down to the Islands and remote Argyle and Bute finishing on Christmas eve in Fort William.

This could not be possible without your donations.

Please keep supporting us so we can support others.

Thank you
