About Our Auction
The Complete Poems and Songs of Robert Burns, Scotland's National Bard, in hard back, is being offered for auction in aid of Marten's Progress an organisation established to help pay for Marten's McFee's special therapy in his battle with cerebral palsy. The auction is timed to finish just before Marten's special acoustic concert with Donnie Munro on the 19th of April in Renfrew.
The works of Burns will endure forever including "Auld Lang Syne" and Marten's dad's favourite "Scots Wha Hae", written by Burns in 1793 in the form of a speech given by Robert the Bruce before the battle of Bannockburn in 1314 where Scotland triumphed against English aggression, ultimately leading to the Declaration of Arbroath and Scottish Independence in 1320.
The book is autographed by the Rt Hon Alex Salmond MSP, Scotland's First Minister, Leader of Scotland's 21st Century Independence movement. With 2014 being the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn; the year of the Scottish Homecoming, and in September the Independence Referendum this specially signed book is sure to become a collector's piece.
About Marten's Progress
Marten's is 3 years old and suffers from severe spastic cerebral palsy. Current provision on the NHS offers very little to a child like Marten, condemning him to a life of drugs, surgery and forceful interventions. Thankfully Marten's parents discovered a wonderful therapy called ABR. Marten is now pain free, drug free, free of spastic contractions and is building up his strength and functional ability. Marten's Progress was established to raise funds to help pay for Marten's ABR Therapy so that he be given the opportunity of a happy life with maximum independence.
