Let's p-p-p-party

By Alistair Whitfield


A MORAY charity will have supporters from six of the world's seven continents celebrating its birthday this month.

Busega Scotland has folk marking its fifth anniversary in both South and North America, Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa.

Now the search is on for someone to hold a party on the seventh continent – the South Pole.

John Carney, who runs the Garmouth-based charity with his wife Christine, said: "We're hoping that someone who's going to the Antarctic on a cruise might contact us – or even someone who works there at a survey centre.

"Considering the fact that people are celebrating everywhere else across the world, it would be great if we could also include the South Pole.

"We're using the term 'party' quite loosely. You don't have to drink, dance and make merry in the snow – just having a cup of tea or wine on your own would be enough.

"But we'd love to hear if you, or someone you know, has an Antarctic connection."

The Busega Scotland parties really will straddle the whole planet.

Venues include Belo Horizonte, a city in Brazil, and Bangalore in India.

Meanwhile, on the continent of North America, plans to party are afoot in San Francisco on the west coast, plus both Crossville and Lafayette in the sate of Tennessee, and also Huntsville in Alabama.

African supporters are not in short supply thanks to both the primary school and orphanage which Busega Scotland funds in Tanzania.

Events are also on the cards in Germany, Honduras, Uruguay, New Zealand and Australia.

And, of course, the birthday will be marked in a big way in Moray when, on Tuesday evening, local supporters will gather at the Qismat restaurant on Elgin High Street.
