On May 1st Carol Gillies  set off on her Suzuki V-Strom motorbike to ride around Scotland anti-clockwise, riding mainly b and c roads, in order to take in as much of the coastline as possible. (Apart from the obvious bit where the border is! and the land ends ) she miles completed nearly 2000  in total

1ST DAY MAP

For a great deal of the journey Carol could see water a constant reminder to her of why she was doing this, and whilst she travelled  along the coast the greatest amount of water she could see was undrinkable because it is salt water.

For many folk in this world the only water they know is dirty in fact filthy, full of bacteria, parasites and animal faeces and as it is the only water available.

Every single day, 1,400 children die from drinking it.

That’s one a minute, every day.

Carol did this in the hope of attracting your attention just for a wee while enough time to make you aware of Water Aid

WaterAid is a charity that works in places all over the world where people have no access to clean water.  At all…

One in ten people in the world have no access to clean, drinkable water.  That’s about 748 million people.  Every day is a struggle just to find enough to stay alive,
