Lynne McNicoll runs her own charity called It’s Good 2 Give. If you have not heard of Lynne before then you must have been living under a tree, because she is everywhere in Edinburgh, raising money for the charity which aims to make cancer treatment more bearable for children and young people who have the disease. Her energy is almost without limit, and it appears to us that she works tirelessly for the cause, although we know she does not really consider it work.


We asked Lynne to give The Edinburgh Reporter an update as to what she has planned over the coming months so that you can perhaps get involved….and we got her to stop long enough to write it all down for us…


It’s Good 2 Give is a local charity supporting children and young people with cancer and their families.

Our next event is on Saturday, 11 August from  6.30-9pm

It’s a family event at Craigie’s Farm Shop and Café, Dalmeny

BBQ and games.

Games outside if it’s nice and inside if it’s wet!

£10 for adults and £5 for children (under 16) – includes food and games.

And on 9  September

Join our team of cyclists called ‘Pedal for Paul’ in the Pedal For Scotland bike ride between Glasgow and Edinburgh  – register for £30 pp and raise whatever you can.  Our team has 51 cyclists – help us get to 75!
