What is Breaking The Law?

Tour de Clacks is our affectionate name for sponsored walking and cycling events around our Wee County. Breaking The Law is our latest event!

Event description: The aim of the sponsored event is to raise money for Ochils Mountain Rescue and our International Charity Global Sight Solutions. The event is a challenge to climb the height from Everest Base Camp (5364m) to the Everest summit (8849m) in one day using the path from the car park in Upper Mill Street in Tillicoultry to the top of the Law. To achieve this ascent of 3485m the hill will have to be climbed 5 times in succession. We estimate that this will take between 12 and 16 hours to complete depending on the weather and our legs!

Global sight solutions surgery

What is Global Sight Solutions?

Global Sight Solutions is a charity that provides free eye care to those suffering from avoidable blindness who are simply too poor to access solutions to a variety of sight problems. Most of these people require simple cataract surgery to restore their sight, an operation that can be performed with as little a donation as £5 - a small price to pay to restore sight! Alloa Rotary Club are leading a project to raise the funds required to equip a new eye hospital and have already raised around half the total required. To date Global Sight Solutions have equipped nearly 80 Rotary Eye hospitals with a capacity of close to 180,000 cataract operations per annum – help us to add to that!
