“During Colin’s placement at Stromness Surgery, a situation arose where he, along with the community nursing staff, was unable to source a suitable wheelchair for a terminally ill young patient. Following this, Colin decided to organise the ‘3 Bens Challenge’ with his Red Rox team to raise money to buy a wheelchair for the community. They completed the challenge well within the target time and succeeded in raising enough money to buy a custom built, self propelled wheelchair for the practice. The team came up to Orkney in September to present the wheelchair to the practice. It has already been a fantastic resource for the practice and a number of patients have benefited from it. On behalf of the Stromness patients, doctors and staff our thanks go out to Colin and the team for providing the wheelchair.

Red Rox 24 Hour Challenge 2015
“A massive thank you from our crew for a well run day, nice friendly supporters, excellent food and amazing cup cakes. What a challenge; definitely through the best scenery Scotland has to offer, topped of by an amazing sunset. Outside we were all happy and smiles, inside our poor bodies were screaming. Walking like a broken man today, but the pain will pass long before the great memories of the challenge.
