Have your say

Graeme, who was accompanied for most of the journey by friend Phil Smith (left), was raising funds for Balerno High School’s new sports surface.

The aim is the to provide a 2G carpet for the only state school in Edinburgh to field boys hockey teams. It could also be used for netball, lacrosse and tennis.

Graeme said: “It looks like we have raised over £500 and every penny counts. Next adventure? Off to see a knee specialist!”
