Scal­ing the heights for char­ity

The Oban Times - - Districts - Loch Lomond

OWN­ERS and staff at The Lodge on Loch Lomond climbed Ben Ne­vis on Wed­nes­day June 14, rais­ing more than £2,000 for their cho­sen char­ity, The Dream Maker Foun­da­tion.

Staff tak­ing part all nom­i­nated char­i­ties and had a meet­ing to de­cide what one to go with.

The Dream Maker foun­da­tion had a spe­cial place in the heart of one of the or­gan­is­ers as her best friend’s lit­tle sis­ter had been di­ag­nosed with leukemia nearly two years ago.

The Dream Maker foun­da­tion had a huge im­pact in lift­ing the lit­tle girl’s spir­its through­out her treat­ment.

The team agreed this was the char­ity to go for and hoped their ef­forts would help to make other chil­dren’s lives a bit more bear­able dur­ing such a dif­fi­cult time.

A Just Giv­ing page was set up for the climb, rais­ing more than £1,000.

Af­ter the climb was com­pleted, with ev­ery­one mak­ing it to the top, the own­ers of the ho­tel Niall and Ann, who also took part in the climb, an­nounced they were go­ing to match what the staff had raised per­son­ally, bring­ing the to­tal to more than £2,000.
