A few days ago The Orkney News reported about Kirkwall man Mike Hoy who travels 4 times a year to Edinburgh to donate blood. Others in Orkney also travel to donate blood because there is no facility to do this in Orkney.
Mike is also going to be taking part in a marathon later on this year, wearing his kilt, with sponsorship money raised going to ENABLE. ENABLE provides service to adults who have a learning or physical disability in Orkney.
If you would like to contribute to ENABLE you can do so here: ENABLE Scotland
