Patrick writes

Wellington School’s Sixth Year Charity this year is SAMH which stands for Scottish Association for Mental Health. They aim to provide all the help necessary for people struggling with mental illness. To help raise money for them, I have decided to swim from Lady Isle to the beach of Ayr on Sunday 19th June. I’m very grateful to be looked after on the journey by members of the Ayr Sea Cadets and Troon Rowing Club. The link to the just giving page is here 100% of donations go straight to SAMH and do so much good for people in need.
Members wishing to take part in the accompanying skiff should contact Bob Dawson ASAP. Please do not forget to click on Just Giving link above to pledge whatever you can for this brave venture and excellent cause.
