MUCK­AIRN Church Taynuilt Guild mem­bers and guests met re­cently in the church.

Stella Hunt­ing­ford led the prayers, Mar­lene Stan­ners gave the read­ing and vote of thanks and ev­ery­one sang the hymns ‘Christ’s the world in which we move’ and ‘Make us a chan­nel of your peace’.

Conor Smart gave a talk about his work with Whiz­zKidz, a na­tional char­ity founded in 1990 and only just grow­ing in Scot­land. It gives young adults and chil­dren who are dis­abled more con­fi­dence and in­de­pen­dence en­abling them to lead more ac­tive and in­ter­est­ing lives. It does this by giv­ing them ap­pro­pri­ate wheel- chairs and the train­ing to use them and run­ning clubs. Am­bas­sador clubs for dis­abled peo­ple aged be­tween 10 and 25 years old of­fer fun and friend­ship through a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties such as sport, mu­sic and drama and are par­ent-free zones. The aim is that the young peo­ple can own and take a lead­ing role in run­ning am­bas­sador clubs them­selves.
