It’s Good 2 Give’s Ripple retreat opened by Lorraine Kelly.


Lorraine Kelly and Grant Stott officially opened It’s Good 2 Give’s Ripple Retreat on the shores of Loch Venacher today.

A £1 million designer home gifted to families who have children with cancer, has opened its doors today (Friday 12th May 2017) to its first visitors following the fundraising success of a small Edinburgh-based charity.

The Ripple Retreat, an exceptional 3-bedroomed loch-side home at Loch Venacher near Callander, celebrates its launch today (Friday) after a fundraising campaign by a husband and wife team.

Lynne McNicoll OBE, founder of the charity It’s Good 2 Give, has raised over £2m in donations while working with her husband, Ian, who has project-managed the 18-month long construction process.

They were joined by television personality Lorraine Kelly and 120 guests this afternoon to celebrate the launch of the new home. Designed to exceptional standards by award winning architect Tony Kettle,

The Ripple Retreat has a unique wave-shaped roof, inspired by the ripples of the loch.
