We’re delighted to be able to announce that our 2019 Talent Gathering Charity Partner will be “Calum’s Cabin“.
Calum’s Cabin was the idea of Calum Speirs who at the age of eleven had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Living on the Isle of Bute his idea was to create a holiday home for children suffering from cancer to come and make some irreplaceable memories with their families. A beautiful place where they could escape from the world of hospital treatments. Each year Calums Cabin provides holidays for over 130 families and has helped over 1,000 families since it began.
Calum’s Cabin started with the idea to fund a purpose-built, countryside retreat situated on the Isle of Bute and Calums family opened the cabin in February 2009. An undoubted success, the charity opened Calums Cabin Cottage in 2012.
Each family enjoys a weeks holiday on the beautiful Isle of Bute with the charity ensuring that ferrys cots are covered, while also including some some spending money and activities around the island. Whether it’s a walk on the beach, playing a board game or simply enjoying spending time with each other, there is always something to do and remember.
The Talent Gathering 2019 is delighted to support Calum’s Cabin.
