Gearing up for Gurkha Highlander '09

I'm beginning to spend time doing the cheques for the Gurkha Welfare Trust and as ever they tell tales that wring your heart. The Gurkha Highlander Walk starts on Sunday evening at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge at 6pm ( all welcome). There will be a ceremony and the haunting pipe-tune " Flowers of the Forest".
I've also been doing eadio interviews, and all of them have had the slant that the Government is the baddie. To be fair, the rules at the time were not well drawn, which is why we have had the Fragrant Joanna continuing her campaign to be sainted or at least Damed.
The nicest thing has been a contact from a lady who is in charge of the Dancers of Braemar, who dance for the Tourists and take contributions which are passed to charities. For the next two weeks, they are donating their takings to the GWT, which is rather nice. I daresay the boys will want to dance to the pipes when the cheque is handed over!
