The Isle of Rum Regeneration Project

Tesco has teamed up with Greenspace Scotland to launch its Bags of Help initiative in Scotland. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.

For more details of the scheme, follow this link: www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

We are proud to announce that our Isle of Rum Regeneration Project is one of the community group projects picked for this region’s scheme

Hiking is good for your brain!

14-06-2016

"According to a study published last July in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a 90-minute walk through a natural environment had a huge

positive impact on participants. In a survey taken afterwards, those people who took the natural walk showed far lower levels of brooding, or obsessive worry. The control group who spent that 90 minutes walking through a city reported no such difference. Not only that, but the scientists went a step further and did brain scans of the subjects. They found that there was decreased blood flow to the subgenual prefrontal cortex. What in the world does that mean? Well, increased blood flow to this region of the brain is associated with bad moods. Everything from feeling sad about something, to worrying, to major depression seem to be tied to this brain region. Hiking deactivates it."
