Our Chieftan: Mr Roddy Riddle
Roddy Riddle, ex-international road cyclist and type 1 diabetic, was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 40, and up until that point, he knew very little about the condition.
Roddy is now raising awareness of type 1 diabetes and inspiring people to take more control of their condition so they can lead a life without limits. He am living proof that it can be done.
The Junior School
The 28th Games will be held at the sports grounds of the Junior School, in Gordonstoun. We are proud to be supporting the Junior Highland Games again, and we wish all competitors the very best of luck.
From the Junior School Headmaster, Mr Robert McVean:
I am delighted to welcome you to the Junior Highland Games 2018 for what will be our 13th Junior Highland Games within the grounds of Gordonstoun.
We are looking forward to welcoming many teams and visitors this year.
We will have many stalls and activities on offer, you are sure to have an action packed day, and all the money raised at the 28th games will be given to our chosen charities, the NSPCC and Children 1st in Elgin.

Last year we raised over £8000 for our chosen charities.
This year, we are hoping to give the NSPCC and Children 1st some much needed funding to help them with their great work with young children in need.

Our chosen charities for 2018
Abuse robs children of their childhood. Without help, the scars of abuse can last a lifetime. And as devastating as it can be for the child, society pays a heavy price too.
Abuse changes childhood, but so can we.
Child abuse is preventable – not inevitable. And it’s up to each of us to do everything possible to keep childhood safe from abuse, so children can grow up healthy and thrive. That’s why we’re here and drives what we do. So as long as there’s abuse – we will fight for every childhood.
Children 1st in Elgin have a range of services that help women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.
Through the Stronger, Safer Families Project, Children 1st work to support mothers to develop both their capacity and confidence to care for and protect their children.
We help mothers to consider aspects of their own experiences which might be affecting how they parent their children. We aim to help women to become more resilient and in so doing supporting them to provide a secure environment in which their children can thrive.
