Aberdeen Sports Village have chosen to fund raise money for their chosen charity CHAS. CHAS is the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland.

Read Hamish's Story
Hamish was born 14 weeks prematurely with cerebral palsy and severe dystonia. He has little voluntary movement and poor muscle tone, so he is very ‘floppy’. But when his muscles go into spasm, he becomes very rigid. He can’t control it and it’s very painful for him.
When he was seven, he was very unwell and spent a long time in hospital. One night he stopped breathing altogether and we discovered he had serious respiratory difficulties. It was terrifying. He now has a tracheostomy in his windpipe and is on a ventilator machine 24 hours a day to support his breathing.
Hamish is 13 now and he gives so much back. He’s very bright and has a great sense of humour, but he needs care 24 hours, non-stop, from specially trained carers. We’re on alert all the time. The ventilator could stop working or his tracheostomy could get blocked.
When CHAS at Home come to visit us at home, I can completely relax. The care is exceptional and staff are specially trained with his ventilator. Hamish loves it, they know him and his sense of humour, so they’ll bring games they know he’ll enjoy or take him out to places like Deep Sea World. One time my husband and I were able to go out to the cinema and have something to eat – it was so lovely
