Bute resident, Jenna Speirs, has been named the Young Persons Hero, for her work with local charity Calum’s Cabin, at a recent event in aid of Radio Clyde Cash for Kids.
Calum’s Cabin was established in 2007 in memory of Jenna’s twin brother Calum who died aged just 12 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The special place Jenna and her parents, Caroline and Duncan, have created means that now 100 families a year can come to relax and make special memories.
Jenna said: “It’s a real honour to be named Cash for Kids’ Young Persons Hero and receiving the award at the event was a memorable moment for me. Calum’s Cabin is such a special place for so many families and we as a family know how cherished memories are.
“Calum wanted other children to enjoy our beautiful Isle of Bute like he did and everything we do is to keep his wish alive. I just want to thank everyone who helps to run Calum’s Cabin including every person who has ever donated. Their generosity means that more families than ever are coming to us and spending precious moments together.”
