Hi everyone and sorry for the long silence. I have been round the globe since my last posting and then back to sunny Scotland (yes it is true!!) Leaving India after 5 months was hard and those I worked with are often in my mind and thankfully often in contact. I saw my new wee godson Ruari in Sydney (son of Katherine and Rich Burnett; Katherine is a Cairdeas Trustee and treasurer). Then it was off round the globe with a brief and idyllic stop in the Cook Islands. It is a beautiful paradise in the middle of the Pacific. Great to see friends in LA then back to Scotland. We have been busy with Cairdeas work - meetings, networking and planning groups. I have been humbled by the interest of so many. Our Trustees have approved the projects in Rwanda and Vellore. We have agreed next years budget too - just need the money now! Cairdeas 200 is our vision of 200 people to support us a minimum of £10 per month and act as our founder members and advocates. Slowly this group is coming together (15 so far) If you would like to be part of this please get in touch. www.cairdeas.org.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks to all who have and are supporting us. A special thanks Steven who did a 10km run earlier this year and to those who tried to do a parachute jump but were thwarted by the clouds. They are all scheduled for September so have fun and take care! My next posting will have pictures of bonnie Scotland!!
