Terry Neason & Karen Dunbar - Calum's Cabin 2008

Benefit Show on The Isle of Bute for Calum's Cabin

12 year old Rothesay boy, Calum Speirs lost his fight for life little more than a year after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. Brave Calum, a first year pupil at Rothesay Academy, died peacefully at home in Mountstuart Road on Friday 16th February 2007. The funeral service, much of it arranged by Calum himself, was held at the former High Kirk on Wednesday 21st February 2007. Calum was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour only a few days after the first symptoms were noticed last January- but he’s left his family with a host of happy memories from the 13 months since then. In the 13 months, Calum was an inspiration to all who knew and met him. Calum always laughed and smiled, and his priority was always to think of others.

Calums Cabin
Calum and his family had decided that they would like to keep helping others by having a Holiday Cabin in Calum’s name to allow other families who are dealing with a child with cancer to have a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Bute. Details of the proposed Cabin can be found on the Calums Cabin page

Funny Health & Safety video of Bricklayer Story told by Terry Neason

Bricklayer's Story...Hilarious Health and Safety tale

This bonkers story has been around since the 1950s. It's based on the old Gerard Hoffnung tale of an unfortunate bricklayer, who suffers from an attack of really 'bad planning'...he reports his incredible amount of injuries and places a claim, to Health and Safety, who come back with " You're having a laugh mate! ...explain!" so he does.

I first heard it read by Clive James, when I was entertaining at an Awards Ceremony. and I laughed till I wept! Seemed the only thing to do, was to pinch it....so I did and now I can say " I DID IT MY WAY"
