Wedding Day Memories

13 February 2017

Rory and Ailsa Telfer from Edinburgh asked their wedding guests to make a donation to Capability Scotland instead of giving presents. Their incredibly kind gesture was in memory of Rory's sister, Mirren, who passed away in 2014, aged just 20.

Rory explains:"Mirren was born with cerebral palsy but she always had friends and family around her who made sure she lived as unrestricted a life as possible and in her short time she lived and travelled all over and had a rich and happy life. Our reason for supporting Capability Scotland is the work they do in ensuring that disabled people can have access to the support and opportunities they deserve.

We had an amazing wedding day at Prestonfield House. We had 140 guests during the day and more in the evening -even the December weather was kind! Ailsa and I are delighted that our wedding guests were so supportive in remembering Mirren".

Rory and Ailsa's guests raised over £5000 towards our services supporting disabled people in Scotland - an amazing total -thank you so much.
