ONE of those preparing to take part in the Edinburgh Sport Relief Mile and raise awareness of mental health issues is Andrew Mackenzie.

Andrew, 29, from Gorebridge, has suffered from recurring clinical depression for the past four years.

The Bank of Scotland worker said: “Over the past year, it’s been quite bad for me, but this year I decided I was going to do something.

“Staying physically active has been a massive challenge for me through my bouts with depression, but Sport Relief has given me the drive to get fit again, which has had a positive effect on my mental well being, whilst raising funds for a great charity.”
