The Bothy Shelterers

About the group

The Bothy Shelterers is a group of family and friends who are taking on the National Three Peaks Challenge in memory of Brian Robertson who passed away in 2017 after a short 11 week battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Brian was a keen hillwalker and was a member of the Tayside Police Mountain Rescue Team, and he also took on the 3 Peaks Challenge himself.

Our fundraising page.

Fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer Scotland / The Maggie's Centre / Macmillan Cancer Support

We will be walking to raise money for the charities that helped Brian throughout his illness: The Maggie's Centre, Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and Macmillan Cancer Support. We're aiming to raise at least £5000, with 50% of the proceeds going towards Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and the remaining 50% split between the other charities. Forty years ago, 3% of people diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer survived five years or more. That figure is still 3%. Each year around 9,500 people in the UK are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It has the lowest survival rate of all 21 common cancers, with only 3% of those diagnosed living for 5 years post diagnosis and only 1% living for 10 years. Despite its high mortality rate and lack of improvement in chances of survival, pancreatic cancer has attracted little research funding in comparison with many other cancers - currently less than 2% of research funding from the major funding bodies.

Challenge registration number: 217704
