All Shapes And Sizes is a non-profit registered Scottish charity in Aberdeen.
Our vision is to enhance life of Adults with Learning Disabilities/Difficulties (ALD) and/or with mental health issues, by promoting social inclusion to those individuals and to raise awareness & understanding to the public. By enhancing their lives & sense of wellbeing is to become a valued member of society via inclusion in all things.
We facilitate activities of all sorts, directly to the individuals and/or within a group, such as arts & crafts, short outings, day trips, Karaoke, movies, & pampering sessions, and any other future activities within Aberdeen.
Basically, we promote fun, friendship, recreational and educational good times.
We are organising this event called "Walking the West Highland Way 2017", in order to raise awareness of what we do and for whom, and of course to raise funds to continue providing the activities to those individuals and further the charity aims. You can book yourself in via this page AND/OR donate money :)
The 154 Km (96 miles) Route starts at Milngavie passes through Mugdock Country Park, follows the shores of Loch Lomond, passing Ben Lomond, through Glen Falloch and Strathfillan, crossing Rannoch Moor, past Buachaille Etive Mor to the head of Glencoe, climbing the Devil’s Staircase, descending to the Loch Leven before entering Lairigmor and Glen Nevis and finishes at Gordon Square in Fort William.
