Donnie and the team

chas proud part

Sportive Kinross is proud to support Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) is a charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people with life-shortening conditions.
CHAS offers care in two children's hospices, Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch. The hospices support the whole family by offering short planned breaks, emergency support, end of life care and a range of bereavement services.
CHAS also provides a home care service, called CHAS at Home, staffed from both hospices and with dedicated teams in the North of Scotland. The service offers care to families in their own homes when they need it most.
CHAS supports over 250 families, as well as a significant number of families who receive bereavement support. The services are funded mainly through the generosity of the many supporters who help raise over £7 million needed each year to provide these vital hospice services.

Part of your entry fee will go to CHAS to help them continue their important work.

We are very grateful to have Raynet on board to provide communications between our HQ at Loch Leven Community Campus and various out stations around the 3 routes. Without their dedicated team of volunteers it would make the management of our event much harder.
RAYNET was formed in 1953 following the severe East coast flooding, to provide a way of organising the valuable resource that Amateur Radio is able to provide to the community.
Since then, it has grown into a very active organisation with around 2000 members, providing communication assistance on many hundreds of events each year.
Amateur Radio operators have access to a wide range of radio bands, operating modes and equipment which allows RAYNET to offer a unique range of emergency communication services to our user services. Coupled with our members endless resourcefulness, RAYNET is regarded as a professional support organisation by both the statutory and volunteer emergency service organisations.

Castle Furniture Project

Founded in October 1993, the primary charitable object of Castle Furniture Project is to provide free or low cost household goods to disadvantaged families and individuals to relieve poverty and indebtness in Fife.
To that end, the project provides the transport and labour to collect donations free of charge from people throughout Fife. These donations are brought to the warehouse where they are sorted, assessed for condition, repaired where possible, renovated when feasible, and displayed in our warehouse in Cupar.
The project offers marginalised groups opportunities to work in a safe, supportive, inclusive environment. For many who lead chaotic lifestyles it is the first tentative step to leading a more structured life.
Being in a position to help others is a core element of this process and the furniture which the project collects and redistributes enables individuals to help other people who are facing extreme hardship.
It is this hidden element of the projects work that provides a truly inclusive environment that provides a service whereby vulnerable people offer their assistance to others in need whilst delivering a much needed services to the wider community economical, socially and environmentally.

“Promoting inclusion and empowering individuals affected by mental health, poverty and social injustice”

Our Values There are many different ways in which people are making their time matter with Castle. Whatever the role, we always base the way we act – both individually and as an organisation – around four important values:
We are personal
We treat everyone we come into contact with as an individual without labels.
We listen to their experiences and needs, and provide them with the personal support that’s right for them. That’s true whether they’re a person living with a mental health illness, or an offender, or a lawyer, teacher that volunteers as a Trustee.
We demand better
Whatever we do, we always believe there’s room for improvement.
So we demand better – from ourselves and others. We’re constantly looking at the bigger picture and for better ways of doing things, so we can stay one step ahead and shape a better future for everyone in the community.
We are Sector Leaders
We are recognised as a sector leader – in innovation systems and technology, training, partnership working and our supported employments. Our reputation is based on constantly improving, we’re action-focused, so we use our expertise to deliver tangible improvements to people’s lives.
We are inspirational
Our shared commitment to what we do inspires us to do our best.
Our positive energy inspires people affected by life circumstances cope with their experience. Our passion will inspire other to get involved, to change the lives of everyone in our community.

Julia Whytock Will Writer

I am a Scottish qualified lawyer and specialise in preparing Wills and Powers of Attorney for individuals who want to get their affairs in order. I am also a cyclist and new member of the club, you may have met me on social rides.

Life is a dangerous game and we never know what is round the corner. By preparing a will you can be sure that any upset and misunderstanding is kept to a minimum should you come a cropper and that your children and loved ones are cared for and protected. Without one you may well be surprised not only about the cost and delay involved but also what the law says should happen. It is probably not what you think. If you are living with someone you love but are unmarried then you are both in a particularly vulnerable position. Call me and I can explain more.

Sadly it can happen that we are injured or incapacitated following an accident. I am sure we have all heard of cyclists who have been out of action for a while and this can lead to their family being put in a difficult position paying bills, accessing their bank account, dealing with employers and the medical teams. If this situation becomes permanent then the only option is to petition the court for a Guardianship Order which is very costly and time consuming. So by thinking ahead and appointing an attorney who can act for you, you will save a lot of worry, hassle and expense. Think of it like an insurance, good to have but hopefully you will never need it.

I generally conduct interviews in the home but can also arrange a video call if you prefer. There is no need to take time off work nor worry about fees as I have a reasonable all inclusive charge. Please have a look at my website for more information . I am both approachable and professional and would be delighted to help you through what many perceive as a daunting process, making it clear and straight forward.

I am delighted to say that 25% of fees earned through helping entrants to the Sportive Kinross are being donated to CHAS.
