A Great Day Out

Seventy three of us met up at Blair Drummond Safari Park on Saturday 31st May for a very special day out in glorious sunshine. Participants came from all over Scotland – Grampian, Strathclyde, Lothian, Fife and the Borders. Everyone, including the Brain Tumour Action team, has been affected directly or indirectly by a brain tumour in our immediate families.

The Blair Drummond staff were absolutely brilliant. They provided a wheelchair-accessible marquee, our own picnic tables, cordoned-off parking area and delicious picnic lunch. Brain Tumour Action brought ball games, an outsized Connect Four, arts and crafts and plenty of young volunteers to help out. The design-your-own wild animal masks were a great hit with all ages – see below! The Brain Tumour Charity which co-financed this event, were represented by Gus Ironside, Operations Manager for Scotland and we are most grateful for his enthusiastic support.

……and in the sun!

For some families this was the first outing they had been able to have together for a long time. Their appreciation – “awesome” “really fun” “it’s been a wonderful day” – made it all worthwhile.
