We're happy to announce that we have started a fundrasing campaign to help with those affected by the spike in cases of Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) as a result of the Zika epidemic.
We were lucky enough to travel to Brazil on our honeymoon this off season and little did we expect the amount of media coverage that the country was getting relating to the rare autoimmune condition. 10 years ago Martin had a severe case of GBS so he knows all too well the strain on hospitals, families and the individuals themselves to battle back to health. In Brazil and other South American countries there are many clinics struggling to cope with a spike in the condition that is being triggered by the Zika virus.
GBS is 100 years old this year and fittingly, Glasgow will host the world symposium on June 24th. The day before, June 23rd, we have pledged to donate 100% of all money made at the Tea Garden and will welcome any donations made by kind patrons between now and then.
At the time of typing this we are almost a quarter of the way to our target of £5000! If you can spare a few quid we would be delighted if you can donate online following this link Fundrazr Site
The Oban times ran the story this week and we're hoping to get the word spread far and wide so get in touch if you can help.
