Bute charity Calum’s Cabin has been named as a finalist in five categories at Scotland’s 2015 Charity Champions awards.

The charity, which provides short breaks on Bute for families with seriously ill children, is in the running for the Children’s Charity of the Year, Event of the Year (for its Ladies’ Afternoon Tea at Mar Hall last November) and Fundraising Team of the Year prizes at the annual event, taking place in Glasgow on Thursday, December 3.

Set up in memory of Calum Speirs, who died aged 12 in 2007 a year after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, Calum’s twin sister Jenna has been short-listed for the Volunteer of the Year prize - while Calum himself is named for the Inspiration Award.

The event is supported by the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR), whose chief executive, David Robb, said: “We are delighted to be involved in recognisingand celebrating the hard work of individuals and charities who contribute to a thriving community sector in Scotland.”
