A recent event included Martin Macrae’s Challenge . Martin who suffers from kidney disease took to the Great Glen Canoe Trail with a team of friends and paddled the 60 mile distance over six days whilst using a mobile dialysis machine for over two hours every day outdoors. With our assistance, support and backing of this event we ensured that over a £1,000 was saved in event costs allowing over £10,000 now going to Highland Health Board Endowment Funds
