HopScotch Childrens Charity
HopScotch provides FREE breaks to severely disadvantaged children living in Scotland aged between 7-11 years. Our Respite Centre, Ardvullin is situated in Ardgour on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. It sits in 5 acres of its own grounds overlooking Loch Linnhe in an area of outstanding beauty. Since it’s establishment in 1998 HopScotch has enabled over 4000 different children to have a break at Ardvullin and the number has increased steadily year on year, from 100 in 1999 to over 350 in 2012. In 2013 we plan to provide 348 disadvantaged children, who have no other chance of a break away from their problems, with a week at Ardvullin.

On 31 May I am attempting to climb Kilimanjaro with my wife and 4 of my children. While not specifically a charity event I'm looking to raise a little bit of money for Hopscotch Children's Charity where my son is a trustee.  Hopscotch gives respite breaks to 7-12 year old kids from across Scotland who are in desperate need of a break of their difficult lives.  

Thanks for anything you can donate.
