Joanne's Scottish National Trail

7th August 2017

Trossachs Search and Rescue team member Joanne will be walking from Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders to Cape Wrath in the very far north of Scotland. The total distance is 864 km (or 537 miles) and will involve several overnight stays in the absolute luxury of a (hopefully waterproof) tent and also many nights in a campervan.

Joanne will be starting the walk on Wednesday 16 August 2017 and hopes to finish before Christmas - but preferably the start of October.

Joanne is raising funds for Trossachs Search and Rescue Team, as we are a wholly voluntary charity who receive no government funding, and have no paid members of staff.

Trossachs Search and Rescue is a unique organisation which delivers lifesaving training by way of free CPR and AED classes - 1,163 people trained in 2016, maintains 105 public access defibrillators across Loch Lomond and The Trossachs - which have saved six lives in four years, provides rescue boat services and provides the Urban SAR dogs that located all concealed casualties at Stockline and The Clutha disasters in Glasgow. Trossachs Search and Rescue Team also provide the local First Responder service in the area.

Joanne will have a support team (commonly referred to as her husband) who will be shadowing her in the aforementioned campervan. Please feel free to share and donate - any amount will be most appreciated.
