Our Ripple Retreat was officially opened on 12 May 2017 by Lorraine Kelly and Grant Stott ably assisted by some of our Young Ambassadors.

This is the start of a new chapter for our wee charity. 

Already we have hosted a Memory Day for bereaved families at the Retreat and by the end of 2017 we had welcomed 16 families to the Retreat for short breaks.  One family at a time can spend up to five nights here. There is no cost to the family to stay.

And that is where you come in.  We need your support to help us now to fundraise to maintain our beautiful building and provide our services to families.

Our Retreat is situated on the shore of Loch Venachar in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.  Designed by Tony Kettle of Kettle Collective this already award winning building will give families much needed time together during treatment or after bereavement.
