Scotland's Hotel and Spa, Pitlochry

A traditional Scottish welcome was extended to both Christina and I on a somewhat cold and blustery and dare I say, dreich day in Scotland, Pitlochry in fact. Scotland's Hotel and Spa hosted us in their beautiful tartan decorated lounge with coffee and warm home baked scones and jam and cream. Delicious! 

We were there to receive a cheque from Crerar Hotel Trust for £4000 in support of the Muir Maxwell Trust's Epilepsy Alarm project. The cheque was presented by the General Manger of the hotel Donald McLeod, whose warm welcome was also appreciated by Christina and I in the course of our travels on our Mum On the Run for Epilepsy campaign. 

In response to this kind and generous donation I said:

"This most generous donation from Crerar Hotels will enable the Muir Maxwell Trust to provide potentially life-saving epilepsy alarms to eight families on the Trust's waiting list. Looking after a child with severe and complex epilepsy means that families are consumed with anticipation of a seizure. Worst of all is during the night when all family members should be sleeping. especially. Essential night time vigils mean that sleep deprivation becomes the norm. An epilepsy alarm provides peace of mind for both parents and children and allows families to have a proper night's sleep, sometimes for the first time in many years. Our sincere thanks to Crerar hotels for this invaluable support for families which will immediately improve their quality of life." 

Lots of photographs were taken, now to be found on various Twitter and Facebook pages as well as our respective websites. Crerar Hotels deserve huge recognition for their commitment to Scottish charities which has been going in for several years and has reached a number of worthy causes. 

Heartfelt thanks Crerar hotels on behalf of all of MMT's beneficiaries.
