Kim, Molly and I have been fortunate to have volunteered at Who Cares? Scotland’s Summer Camp at Struan over the past 5 years, taken part in supporting care experienced young people attend WC?S Christmas Dinner and been involved in Care Day. We also felt that it was important to contribute to the Care Review in 2019. We are grateful for the welcome we have received and are inspired by the love that Who Cares? Scotland members bring to each and every event ♥

Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund
Eilidh Brown sadly lost her fight against cancer aged just 15 years of age on 25th March 2010. Since then Eilidh’s family have been working tirelessly to build a stunning countryside respite holiday home in the Stirling area for young people and their families who are going through, went through or sadly lost a child to cancer. The Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund is a registered Scottish charity (SC042082).
Her family said, “She showed tremendous bravery and wisdom throughout her ordeal and inspired everyone who came into contact with her. Eilidh was the most extraordinary, loving, sweet, faithful and brave young girl, who always thought of others before herself.” Needless to say, the effects of cancer had a devastating impact on Eilidh and the family and they resolved that whatever the outcome, they wanted somehow to help others and make sure that Eilidh’s legacy would continue. Eilidh’s family set up the Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund through which they are continuing to raise funds.
One of the best things to happen to me since moving to Bannockburn / Stirling was to meet the Brown Family. Sadly, I never met Eilidh, but I have met Gordon & Nicole and love what they are creating as a family for others to benefit from. If you would like to support our fundraising on behalf of the Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund, you can donate here. The great news is that 2020 should see the opening of the Respite Home and Eilidh’s dream come true ♥
