I founded the Strathmore Community Rugby Trust to increase the number of people participating in rugby in the local area. The Trust operates several community rugby project designed to achieve our vision of 'Developing People Through Rugby'. We are now looking to grow and offer our projects and it's benefits to more people.
One of the projects we have developed is Autism-Friendly Rugby. Autism-Friendly Rugby is a physical activity and personal development programme for children aged between 5 and 12 years old with a diagnosis of autism. The project utilises simple games and drills that are planned around the children's needs to engage them in rugby. The project won the SCVO Pioneering Project award in 2020.
The Trust is looking to establish a third session, based in Brechin, and I am raising funds to purchase the specialist sensory equipment for the project.
The walk involves climbing all ten of the Mamore munros south of Fort William. The route is 34km long with 3400m of ascent and is expected to take 14 hours (although I'm aiming to do it quicker). It includes traversing the interestingly named 'Devil's Ridge' and finishes under the Falls of Steall.
