Dear Andy

As you will know, in July this year we launched CommunityForce and asked local
charities and projects to take part and apply. In September, we invited members
of the public to get involved and vote for the projects and charities they felt
were making a big difference in their communities. In total more than 90,000
votes were cast for over 1,000 projects across Scotland.

We are delighted to tell you that the winners have now been announced. Visit
rbs.co.uk/communityforce to find out if the projects you voted for have won a
£6,000 CommunityForce award.

How else can I get involved?
You can continue to support CommunityForce by volunteering for many of the
charities and projects that applied this year. If you would like to volunteer
it's easy to get involved. Explore the full range of projects and see who is
looking for help near you here.

We're also delighted to announce that CommunityForce is working with
Localgiving.com to help provide a sustainable future for local charities and
community groups, by making it possible for you to find and give to these
projects. To find out more about Localgiving.com click here.

Thank you for continuing to support CommunityForce.

Yours sincerely,
Fraser Kennedy
Senior Manager, Community

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
