Are you creative with a crayon? Brilliant with a brush? Phenomenal with a felt tip? If so, Hamish has a colourful challenge for you!

Hamish is looking for twelve primary school pupils to help him design a Tayside Mountain Rescue calendar for 2023. Each of the twelve pupils will be given a full page of the calendar to design.

If you love drawing, painting/designing, Hamish would love to hear from you. Please email him a photograph of a picture* made by you to by Friday 13th May 2022. Hamish will pick twelve pupils to get involved in this exciting project and the winners will be announced soon on the Hamish Hub.

Get creating, good luck and have fun!

*the picture can be of anything…as long as it has been made by you. Send Hamish something that you are proud of.



Win a visit from Hamish to your school and a Hamish sticker for all pupils!

Get involved with monthly fun with Hamish! Each month we will be running a fun competition for schools. These are very exciting activities – like designing a Hamish mask or doing a fun playground group hop!  We will advertise them here and also on Hamish’s Facebook page. We’ll also email head teachers with the details. 

The winning school each month will be featured on our website and will win a school visit from Hamish and a Hamish sticker for all pupils at the school. The visit will involve a short presentation on mountain safety. We may even bring one of our Ford Ranger vehicles or our interactive trailer to the playground (if the head teacher allows!).

Term Competitions

Win a trip to the TMR Base for your school!

Can your school help Hamish raise funds for Tayside Mountain Rescue? We have included lots of fun suggestions for you to get started with fun sponsorship activities. These, along with downloadable sponsorship forms and certificates can be found within the Help Hamish (hyperlinked) section of the site.  Schools are also welcome to set up their own Just Giving (hyperlinked) page to keep track of sponsorship funds.

On the last week of term all you need to do is tell us how much your school has raised by filling in the form below.  The school that raises the most money for TMR will win a trip to the TMR base. During these visits, school children can meet members of the TMR team (including Hamish!), look at and learn more about safety equipment, use the TMR climbing wall and interactive vehicles.
