THREE Wick men who completed the Great Glencoe Challenge earlier this year have handed over £2310 to local good causes.

Arthur Bruce, William MacDonald and Donald McWilliam collected sponsorship for the challenging 26.2-mile trek in July which they finished in just over nine hours.

This was the second time they had undertaken this event, having also participated last year, and did so with friends from Nairn in memory of fellow Great Glencoe Challenge team member Tommy Tweedie, who passed away just weeks after the 2018 event.

At a cheque handover in the town's youth club, the Rosebank Wing at Caithness General Hospital, Caithness Foodbank, Wick Youth Club, The Haven, Wick, the Town and County Hospital, Seafarers Memorial Group and Friends of Green Road Park each received £330.

Over the years the three men have been involved in raising around £18,000 for local good causes.
