High heel challenge for lads

Men from across Midlothian and East Lothian are being invited to wear high-heel shoes for a night.

The event, aimed at husbands, boyfriends, sons, brothers, uncles and nephews, will see participants raise awareness of the White Ribbon Campaign in Scotland, which works to end violence against women. Walkers are also being encouraged to raise sponsorship for associated charities. The person who raises the most will receive two tickets for a major sports event.

Sponsorship and registration forms for the event, which takes place at 2.15pm on Saturday, October 1 at Queen Margaret University, are available from Angela Ray at [email protected] or call 01620 827299, or download a form at www.eastlothiancommunityplanning.org.uk.
