See you at Landmark on July 14!

Our next Children and Families Event is at Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge, on July 14 from 12:00pm-5:00pm.

Events are free for all members, and if you’re not a member already, all you need to do to join is fill in this simple membership form. There is no cost involved.

We will have lunch upon arrival and will have all afternoon on the roller coasters, waterslides and climbing walls for the serious adventure junkies. If you’re after something a bit more relaxing, there are optical illusions, an ancient forest to wander through and a butterfly house. There’s something for everybody.

Looking forward to seeing you there!


In the recent edition of The Wire, the date for this trip was incorrectly noted as July 17 so apologies for any confusion.


Thank you to all who came to our Family Day at Hampden Park!

Thank you to all who turned out to our Family Day at Hampden Park on Saturday!

There were around 70 people who attended and it was an excellent opportunity for old friends to come together and for new friends to be made.

We were given a tour of the 52,063-seat stadium and got to explore the Hall of Fame and Football Museum. FIFA on the Xbox proved to be a popular museum exhibit!

Following the excitement of the museum, we went upstairs to the Millenium Suite and got to enjoy the panoramic views of the stadium over a tasty lunch.

While on the tour, we were given the chance to kick a ball into a goal and have the speed recorded. Teamophilia Scotland has some strong kickers with speeds in excess of 45km/hr recorded!

If you were unable to make it on Saturday, take a look at our Events calendar for our upcoming events. We hope to see you at one of our events soon!

Shoals of people enjoyed our Shark Party

Thank you to everyone who made the trip to come to our Deep Sea World Shark Party on Sunday.  We know several families travelled for hours for the chance to talk to other families with bleeding disorders… and come face to face with the sharks!

In fact we had well over 100 people on the day and the party room was always busy with people refuelling between reptile handling and the shark tunnel.  Next time it looks like we are going to need a bigger boat! A great problem to have for a rare conditions charity!

We are extremely grateful to all the staff at Deep Sea World who kept us well organised (we even had our own announcements) and gave some extremely informative talks. I know a lot of people really enjoyed their encounter with a corn snake or a bearded dragon. The staff were very impressed with how brave everyone was too.
