Climbing for Ian and his group

EIGHT friends of the local Parkinsons Self-Help Group will be tackling a fundraising mountain climbing challenge later in September.

The eight-person team is dedicating its walk up Ben Mor to new PSHG member Ian MacLeod and want to raise as much money as possible to support the group.

Anyone wishing to donate can do so by posting a cheque to the charity at 23-27 Wellwynd, Airdrie, ML60BN or online at

The group holds meetings on the first Wednesday of the month in the Beefeater bar at 12 noon, and anyone wanting more information about the charity can drop in or call 01236766350.
