Min­is­ter’s walk­a­bout boosts Oban cadets

The Oban Times - - News -

THE Rev­erend Christopher ‘Kit’ Jar­man, a re­tired chap­lain to Oban Sea Cadets, em­barked on a per­sonal endeavour af­ter re­cently re­cov­er­ing from can­cer.

Rev Jar­man com­pleted a fivemile walk be­tween Oban War and Peace Mu­seum and Glen­burnie House – a sin­gle dis­tance of half a mile ex­actly as mea­sured out by the cadets – along the Cor­ran Es­planade.

He did this 10 times cheered on by a group of Oban Sea Cadets and friends for the to­tal dis­tance of five miles.

This was a tremen­dous feat of en­durance for the cler­gy­man who not so long ago re­quired daily sup­port not only to walk but also to wash and dress.

Rev Jar­man raised a fan­tas­tic £ 3,500 for Oban Sea Cadets and pre­sented the young­sters with a cheque on Thurs­day July 6 dur­ing their weekly pa­rade night at Tweed­dale Street’s Oban Cadet Hall.
