In July our work party of 13, mainly from Maxwell Mearns Castle Parish Church with friends from Netherlee Parish Church, head out to ECRAD’s orphan care centre in Malawi to help rebuild the nursery school and complete “Derek’s Diner” – the new kitchen and dining room being built in memory of ECRAD Scotland’s founder Derek Wood. We will also be taking over clothing and other aid to the children and their teachers, helping with sports coaching, and generally encouraging the local team. 

On Saturday 24th June the team is taking on the 52 mile / 3,000 feet climb of the 5 ferries challenge to raise funds to help ECRAD continue to feed and teach orphans. We brought a local bike back from Malawi on the last trip, and to spice up our challenge, we aim to propel it round the route if humanly possible! Currently ECRAD is feeding 400 orphans each day, and so we would be so grateful if you could support our efforts with a donation however modest. Thank you on behalf of ECRAD Scotland
