Stra­mash makes a splash

The Oban Times - - Districts -

COLL Kids Club en­joyed a two- day visit from Stra­mash, Scot­land’s out­door so­cial en­ter­prise.

Young­sters came to­gether to take part in a num­ber of ex­cit­ing out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, and bring­ing Stra­mash to the is­land made the event ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able for all of Coll’s chil­dren.

Chil­dren as young as five had their first ex­pe­ri­ence of ‘coas­t­eer­ing’, ab­seil­ing, archery and more, un­der the ex­pert tuition of Stra­mash’s Nona and Rob.

The high school young­sters, who had re­turned home for the hol­i­days, got to spend some valu­able time ex­plor­ing the is­land with their younger friends and sib­lings. The weather was, thank­fully, rea­son­ably kind and Stra­mash were able to make the most of the is­land’s beau­ti­ful beaches and coast­line.

Coll Kids Club pro­vided this op­por­tu­nity with the sup­port of Brand­daddy, Coll As­so­ci­a­tion, Coll Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and Coll Se­niors Club.

The club is also grate­ful to CalMac for spon­sor­ing the trans­port, mak­ing it pos­si­ble for Coll Kids Club to bring Stra­mash and their equip­ment, and to Stra­mash for tak­ing time to give the young­sters this great op­por­tu­nity.

Young­sters of all ages on Coll made the most of the ar­rival of Stra­mash.
