A LEOMINSTER trio took on 73 miles of the west coast of Scotland to raise awareness and funds for a mental health charity.

Sheila Cole, Aidan Bracher and Laura Vickers walked from Inverness to Fort William for Rethink Mental Health.

The route, which follows the major natural fault line of the Great Glen which divides Scotland from coast to coast, took them six days to complete.

"I have done several things over the years for the charity," said Sheila Cole.

"There is still stigma is still attached to mental health and that's not ok. The walk went brilliantly, although it was a real struggle – for me– but we met some lovely people on our route."

The team hopes to raise around £1,000 and anyone wishing to donate can visit justgiving.com/aidan-bracher
