[The Carradale Goat]A big thank you for all your donations and support.

Story from post 10-08-12

Would you like to sponsor or give a donation to this 11 year old?

Angus Watt, 11 year old grandson of Margaret and Fraser Watt,Carradale is attempting to cycle from his home Kilmalcolm in Renfrewshire to Carradale via Arran, a distance of approximately 40 miles.Angus will be accompanaied by his dad John throughout the two day cycle (overnight stop in Lochranza).

Angus is raising funds for the MYOCARDITIS FOUNDATION after his aunt Karen (Margaret and Frasers daughter) died from this condition earlier this year, aged 47. He begins the Sponsored Cycle today Friday 10th August and hopes to arrive in Carradale tomorrow Saturday 11th August so be on the lookout for the pair and cheer them on.

A sponsor sheet is in Patersons Shop, Carradale. I shall add a photo of this young chap when he arrives tomorrow.......Photo of the route and of his late Aunt Karen.

As you may know, Angus Watt, who is the grandson of Mr and Mrs Fraser Watt of Carradale, recently completed a sponsored cycle run from Kilmacolm in Renfrewshire to Carradale , Mull of Kintyre.

In total, Angus raised a sum of 1,820.00 and the family would like to thank everyone who contributed for their very generous donations.

In particular, the family would like to thank all the staff at Patersons Bakery for their invaluable help and support, and Johnny and Eila Durnan for all their time and effort put into taking photographs of Angus at Carradale.

The proceeds have been donated the British Heart Foundation, and these were raised in memory of Angus's Aunt Karen, who very sadly passed away earlier this year.

[ed note: Well done young lad]
