RAM Charity Testimonial raises funds for PLUS

Loyalty in football is rare these days. Ross McGeachie signed for Stirling Albion FC aged 13 (now 28) and has since made over 300 appearances making him the eighth highest in the club’s history. He has been awarded a testimonial season for his outstanding service.

Ross decided that PLUS – which provides services and activities for young people with disabilities – should also benefit from his testimonial fund.

Ross selected three young disabled Stirling Albion Supporters as Ambassadors for his ‘Go Fund Me Campaign’ and set them challenges:

Scott McKenzie has to complete 10 miles around Loch Katrine in his terrain hopper in 4 hours.

Lara Clydesdale must complete 50 laps of the Perimeter of Kings Park Football pitches in 2 hours in her Powerchair. Lara and Scott have Cerebral Palsy.

Jack Robertson, who has late J Global Development, has to walk fifty times around Kings Park Pitches within 3 hours.

Scott, Lara and Jack have all accessed PLUS activities previously. They are all delighted to be part of #TEAM ROSS and raise funds for PLUS. We are right behind them!

Elin raised £1,090 for PLUS – THANK YOU !!!!

Elin from Switzerland is running the Chicago Marathon for PLUS on 9th October. PLUS provides support to Runa and her family.

Elin has updated us on her training. With less than 6 weeks to go until Elin runs the Chicago Marathon! Elin has been training over the Summer while travelling so has ran in Berlin, Marbella, Puglia in Italy, Trondheim in Norway, Sicily, and will be running in Antwerp during an upcoming conference.

Elin updates us with her progress:
“The Chicago Marathon which was so far into the future is now so close that I can almost see the starting line. Training for this event has not been optimal this year with an injury at the beginning of the year and then the pollen making sure I could not run outside for a few months. BUT, during the summer months I have been able to run 3-4 times a week, I have been lucky to travel a lot this summer and have been running at 6 o’clock in the morning in many different countries. It is so nice to discover a new place whilst running alone in the morning, and being able to take it all in. It makes me realise how lucky I am to be able to run and have the freedom to move around freely without help from people or special equipment. I can sometimes complain that I do not have time to myself being a single mum in a foreign country, but then I think of all the people who are care givers to their parents, siblings or children, and who very seldom have any time to themselves. I am so fortunate that I am able to raise some money for a centre that offers help for families touched by challenging health situations and give them a place to come, be happy and feel the solidarity.”
Thank you Elin and lots of luck with your final weeks of training. You can support Elin through:

Thank you Elin!

Declutter and Donate

On May 5 we’re inviting you to join a national #DeclutterAndDonate to support PLUS with your unwanted items. Get involved this #GivingTuesdayNow

Whilst you’re at home staying safe, a good way to keep busy is by spring cleaning and now you can turn your declutter into donations for PLUS.

So clear out your bookshelves, cupboards and drawers and turn your unwanted items into vital funds that will help us continue supporting children and young people across the Forth Valley.

Using Ziffit, a free web and app service, you can get any unwanted books, games, DVDs and CDs instantly valued. This value can then be donated directly to our fundraising activity via Virgin Money.

It’s really easy to do:
1. Download the Ziffit app or use the website link.
2. Scan or enter the barcode number or ISBN of your product and get an instant value.
3. Complete the online trade and pack up your unwanted goodies.
4. Use Ziffit’s free courier or to send your items. Social distancing rules will be followed.
5. The value of your items will be donated to your Virgin Money Giving fundraising page.

The 2.6 Challenge

The 2.6 challenge will take place on 26th April, the day the London Marathon should have been taking place. The goal is to raise £67.6M for charities across the UK in a day – making it the biggest fundraising event raising the most money in a single day. WOW!

If 2.6 million people donated £26 / fundraised £26 they would reach this total.

It is very simple to get involved and we would love all our families, children and young people to get involved.

The idea is to do something around the numbers 2.6 – from running or cycling 2.6 miles to skipping for 26 minutes to reading 26 books to your children … literally anything.

We are going to suggest ideas each day in the lead up on our facebook page and would love others to share ideas of what they are doing. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part.

We are not looking for superheroes – we’re looking for stay at home heroes.

Lots of celebrities and sports teams are signing up getting behind this event, making it hugely exciting and turning it into a wonderful community event.

So what do you do?

  • Choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge
  • Use the link below to fundraise for PLUS – you can set up your own page if you want to and share with friends and family
  • We would love 26 families to raise £26 for PLUS but whatever you can fundraise is an amazing help!
  • Complete your challenge on or around 26th April

And PLEASE, send us pictures or wee videos for us to share.
